The Friday 56

The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. Join us every Friday and share an excerpt from a book you’ve been reading.

Rules:

  • Grab a book, any book.
  • Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
  • Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
  • Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
  • Post It
  • Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple

**Be sure to leave a link to your Friday 56 post in the comments!**
