Good morning, it’s Friday and it’s time to play 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.
In the spirit of the meme, I’m grabbing a book that’s to my right on the top of the shelf. Ah, yes, a book I received in my mailbox a couple of weeks ago.
Guest House, by Barbara K. Richardson, has been on my wish list for awhile. So let’s see what’s happening….
That same afternoon, JoLee left the discount movie house and bought a three-dollar burrito. The matinee had been sad, the burrito was juicy, and for a moment JoLee thought the world would reveal itself to her. p. 56
Hey, I’m already tempted to read this one NOW.
Here’s the product description on Amazon:
On a summer afternoon, Melba Burns witnesses a nightmare collision. The unknown bicyclist dies in her arms, ending Melba’s desire for success at any cost. She settles into her boxy old farmhouse trying to find a simpler peace. But Melba’s stunning new roommate JoLee Garry only magnetizes messes and trouble-she brings a series of unexpected guests who transform Melba’s fruitful solo life into something different, darker, and better.
So what grabbed your attention today? I hope you’ll stop by and share.
