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 Christmas Stalkings collection of short stories collected by Charlotte MacLeod:

"Talk? What about, Tony? About charity? About Christmas? About the time of gifts? How generous are you feeling, Tony? Let's hear some figures." (from the short story "The Running of the Deer" by Reginald Hill)

Sounding a tad bit sarcastic there. Nice tease.

Thanks for visiting Sweet Vernal Zephyr Reviews!

I'm mildly confused... is it Christmas Stalkings or The Running of the Deer?
Thanks for participating.

@Fredamans: It's both, actually. The story collection is called Christmas Stalkings. Page 56 occurs in the middle of the short story "The Running of the Deer."
