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 up at Freda's site.

Here's mine from Flaubert's Parrot by Julian Barnes:

The next morning they found him perched in a tree. Persuading him to come down proved very difficult, until someone had the idea of placing at the foot of his tree an enormous parrot cage.

The title alone intrigued me. I figured it had to have something to do with Gustav Flaubert, and indeed, it did. I was pleased to see that my library had the book. So I put it on my list. Thanks!
