The Friday 56 19 June 2009

Hey - It's actually Friday and here I am. Things are looking up!

The Rules:

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.


The book closest to me is Corruption of Blood by Robert K Tanenbaum.

Let me just grab my reading glasses.......

What really happened in the first half hour or so after the first shots. George is connected to the people who run Dallas, and to the extent that the investigation might affect them, especially in a negative way, George has got to be on top of it. Does that make sense?

This was in a lot of books that someone gave me. I'd never read Tanenbaum before, and finished this in the wee hours this morning. Turns out there are several books he's written, all with the same main characters. I haven't quite decided if I liked this one enough to seek out more of his books.

I picked up a Linda Howard yesterday (Death Angel), and will begin reading it tonight. I also placed an order with Amazon for 4 books by John Scalzi - another author new to me. Has anyone read anything by him, and what did you think?

Odd, this statement sounds almost like non-fiction.
