Friday 56

a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_LiUMpCu2DzI/Sqr3nTR7rmI/AAAAAAAAATM/r0WWAEVg5z4/s1600-h/56.jpg"> I found a new meme last week, and I liked it so much, I wanted to participate again! :o) Friday 56 is hosted by Storytime with Tonya and Friends.

Here are the rules:

* 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.

The closest book to me right now is Bo's Cafe which I started on last night. Here's my sentence(s):

"She looks so totally at peace and comfortable with herself in the midst of a noticeably younger crowd. She is tapping away at a laptop. She glances over and gives me a kind smile and nod. Andy notices my staring as he returns to the table."

Be watching in the next few weeks for a review of this book. :o)

  4. Since it's no longer Friday, I'll just post mine here...

    Mine comes from A Surrendered Heart by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller.

    If left to their own devices, these women would drive him mad before he could arrange for their train tickets.

    I thought that was so much more interesting if I left it at that. lol :o)

    I look forward to your review.

  5. Lee,

    I love Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller's writing, but have only read their individual offerings--never a collaboration. Are you enjoying the series that A Surrendered Heart comes from right now?

  6. I only read that one book... it was a bargain super sale so I broke my own rule and read out of order in a series.

    It was pretty good... but not the best book I've read lately. I didn't feel the need to rush off and buy the rest of the series.
