The Friday 56 (3 Year Anniversary Bash)

3 years ago today I was passed the torch of The Friday 56 from Storytime With Tonya.
This has been a fun 3 years with you all and reading your posts each week. I have even noticed how regular most of you have become. It's because of your dedication that this special post will have a giveaway. You don't have to participate in The Friday 56 to enter the giveaway, but it would be nice...

Giveaway will follow after our weekly 56 post.


Welcome to Week 156!



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





Again I am stuck on the same book.
It's a decent read, I have just been living the fast life lately....
Promise it's almost done.

The woman fixed him with a strict look.
"Babies with sore tummies sleep better on tummies. You watch him. He not die."

  8. Happy 3 years and thank you for the giveaway!

    Sometimes that happens to me - I get stuck on a book because of lack of reading time, nothing against the book though.

    Have a great weekend!

  19. Happy 3 years! Every Friday I try to remind myself to participate but I seem to forget. However, since tomorrow is Friday, I am going to set up a post right now! I have no idea what book I'd pick yet, though it would either be a cozy mystery or a historical romance. :)
