The Friday 56 - 2 Oct 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 An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon:

I turn to page 56, and – it’s blank!

Page 55 has a section title:
Part Two
Blood, Sweat, and Pickles


On page 57, the fifth sentence is:
ON AUGUST 22…

You know what? That’s where I’m going to leave it!

BTW, I am so glad I re-read the entire series before starting An Echo in the Bone. The publication of this series covers 18 years, and each book is rich and luscious – so altho any one of them could be read as a stand-alone – I am now replete with the 18th century!

Thanks for stopping by today.
