Friday 56


The Friday 56 is a bookish meme sponsored by Freda's Voice. It's really easy to participate.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it up at Freda's site.

Here's mine from We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson [there was nothing on page 56 of my edition, so I have decided to go with page 55]:

I can't help it when people are frightened; I always want to frighten them more.

I have been hearing about this book for years but have never read it. After the teaser, I'm not sure I want to. I really don't like scary. But...happy reading!
