  8. I think this is my first time participating in Friday 56. My quote is incorporated into my book review. It isn't exactly line 5 on page 56 because that line needed too much explaining to understand it. So I chose one a little lower down the page.

    I have several Rough Guides in my library and they are good resources for specialized information.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
