Friday 56

The Friday 56 is a bookish meme which is hosted by Freda's Voice. It's really easy (and fun!) to participate.

*Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
*Turn to page 56 and find the fifth sentence.
*Post that sentence (plus one or two more if you like) with these instructions on your blog or in the comments section.
*Post a link back to this blog and Freda's Voice.
*Don't dig for for your favorite book, the coolest, most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST!

Here's mine from A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings by Charles Dickens. This one is from A Christmas Carol itself:

"Your welfare!" said the Ghost.

Scrooge expressed himself much obliged, but could not help thinking that a night of unbroken rest would have been more conducive to that end.
