The Friday 56


Welcome to Week 178!

Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
 *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.

  1. I've felt like that before, and it makes for a long evening.
    This must be a good book if you're sticking with it.
