Happy Friday, everyone, as we celebrate The Friday 56, hosted by Storytime With Tonya.

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.

My book today is one that arrived in the mail last week, which is why it’s stacked on my bookcase nearby.

Where’s My Wand?, by Eric Poole, is One Boy’s Magical Triumph over Alienation and Shag Carpeting….

The mid-July day had already begun to heat up as we headed down the interstate.  We had never driven anywhere with Aunt Jinny, so though her car had no air-conditioning, we were too terrified to be uncomfortable, since she was doing ninety miles an hour and merrily took curves (on two wheels) at eighty-five.  p. 56

Wow!  I think I’m already intrigued…

Here’s a tidbit from the Amazon page:

“A quirky, irreverent story of growing up odd in the 1970’s, when people still wrote letters, loved shag carpeting and used carbon paper….”

What did you find next to you today?  I hope you’ll stop by and share!
