The Friday 56 – 4 Sept 2009


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 Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

The book closest to me is Patriots by David Drake:

They’d reached the intersection. The ballgame was still going on down the main corridor to the right. Easton turned sharply left, as if by pretending Yerby didn’t exist he could make the big man vanish.

I finished reading this last night (my latest acquisition from Amazon), and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a rollicking good read, reminiscent of some Heinlein's juveniles (although the main character is neither a teen nor a Boy Scout).

Quote from Amazon:
"From Publishers Weekly
A modern master of extraterrestrial military mayhem (Northworld, etc.) weighs in with a grand, roistering space opera based loosely on the exploits of American Revolutionary Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys."

Thanks for stopping by today.
