The 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 Penhallow by Georgette Heyer:

Claret never hurt any man yet. My old grandfather never touched anything else, the last years of his life, and he lived to be eighty-five.

Great 56! Sounds interesting. My mother-in-law is 92
and finds joy in everything, including popcorn! Thanks for stopping by today... I can hear that song, too. Starts with "Ding-dong..."!
