Posted in social connections, The Friday 56


This meme is hosted by Storytime with Tonya, and it offers a peek into books that just happen to be nearby.

Here’s how it works:

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.


Here’s mine.  I just glanced to the right, on the top of the bookcase that forms a cubby here in my office, along with the desk and computer station…My hide-out, if you will.

It’s an excerpt from On Chesil Beach, by Ian McEwan—a book I’ve been meaning to read.

In more realistic moods, Edward thought he should find a proper job, teaching history in a grammar school and making certain he avoided National Service. p. 56

What book did you find close by this week?  I hope you’ll stop by and share.

    1. Well, Tonya, that would be the question…do I really keep up, or am I fooling myself? lol

      I do know that I’m having a lot of fun with it. Designing, redesigning, changing things, ranting a bit…when it stops being fun, I guess I’ll get rid of a few!

      Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll be watching to see how you shake things up with your blog.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
