The Friday 56 - 9 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.


The book closest to me is The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown:

The shocking discovery, it seemed, paralleled the ancient spiritual belief in a “cosmic consciousness” – a vast coalescing of human intention that was actually capable of interacting with physical matter.

I have to say that I’m not enjoying The Lost Symbol as much as Angels and Demons or The Da Vinci Code. The writing is staccato (notwithstanding the quote above – lol!) and while I’m about halfway through, there have been several chapters that are only two pages long! It reminds me far more of Digital Fortress and Deception Point.

Thanks for stopping by today.

I have not read anything by Dan Brown but I need too. I have seen The Davinci Code. I have been meaning to read it. How are you liking this book so far?
