Good morning, and Happy New Year’s Eve! Today, I’m celebrating the Friday memes:  Book Beginnings, hosted by A Few More Pages; and The Friday 56, hosted by Freda’s Voice.

The book I chose is not my current read, but it’s on my short stack for the upcoming week, which means I’ll be starting it very soon.

It has been on my TBR stacks for awhile, so I’m thrilled to move it up a few notches.  Sundays at Tiffany’s, by James Patterson, is another of his “departure books,” as I like to call it when he moves into another genre.

A heartwarming tale of a lonely little NY girl and her “imaginary friend.”

For our beginnings, all we have to do is post an opening sentence or two, and then, if we like, react to what we’ve read.


Beginning:  Michael was running as fast as he could, racing down thickly congested streets toward New York Hospital—Jane was dying there—when suddenly a scene from the past came back to him, a dizzying rush of overpowering memories that nearly knocked him out of his sneakers.

Wow!  That certainly plunged us into the middle of something heart stopping, didn’t it?  I think I’m eager to learn more.


The Friday 56 works like this:

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it here.


P. 56:  Follow Jane.

He had to.


Another exciting image springs to mind!  What are you reading out there in the blogosphere?  I hope you’ll pop in and leave your comments and links.  And have a Happy New Year!

    Interesting. Who is Jane? What memory? An equally intriguing start. I also like the page 56 meme. Especially in combination with the beginnings one.

    I so want to read this book, and even see the film. I don;t subscribe to Lifetime, so I missed out.
    Thanks for participating and Happy 2011!
