The Friday 56 (With Instagram 56)

Welcome to Week 231!

With wedding plans in full force, I have done very little reading.
I'm still reading the same book from last week, Made With Love.
I feel terrible I haven't read more.









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)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. 
*It's that simple.


Or join The Friday 56 on Instagram!
Rules:
* Grab a book and find a creative way to showcase your 56.
It can be a photo of the book and the 56 in comments, or whatever you come up with.
Make sure to use the hashtag #Friday56

Noah had stepped in and tried to be a good influence on his nephew. The thing was, it was hard trying to save someone who didn't want to be saved.

  3. Congrats on your wedding! I can imagine you're too busy preparing to have much time for reading.

    That quote has so much truth to it but some people take a long time to learn it.

  10. If you've got a wedding going on it's amazing that you've been able to read at all! This does sound like a good one and this is the 2nd week I suddenly find myself wanting pie!

  11. Great pick Freda I wanted to say Congrats on your Wedding and sadly goodbye I love participating in your meme but I would no longer be participating in it sorry it was fun at the beginning for me but please forgive me for not going into to much details about leaving because I really don't like complaining but it has been fun and you are an amazing person and I wish you the best in everything you do. Can you please delete my link from the Linky because I try to do it but I can't find a delete button because I already deleted my post on my page. Take care and have a wonderful weekend my friend.

  12. Yes, it is hard to help someone who doesn't want to be saved.

    I missed this meme today. I forgot to schedule a post last night and was gone to the beach all day. I'll join in again next Friday.

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!
