The Friday 56


This is a fun meme to do hosted by Freda's Voice. If you'd like to join on the fun go to The Friday 56.

Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it here.

I've been seeing this meme around for a year or two year and decided to join in.

This week I'm reading A Brother's Honor by Brenda Jackson, a contemporary romance.

 

The first full paragraph from page 56:

Their grandfather had flatlined immediately after his last words to them, and they'd finally had to accept that Richard Granger was now gone from their lives. It had been hard going to Sutton Hills to deliver the news to Hannah and even harder to notify  his father and make funeral arrangements without him.

  2. Oh how fun. I'm just starting He's the One anthology. Pg 56 is part of the first one by Jill Shalvis...

    Ella let out the pent-up breath she'd been holding and tried to look normal. As if being handcuffed in nothing but a slipping towel was anywhere close.

  7. We are the hollow men
    We are the stuffed men
    Leaning together
    Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
    Our dried voices, when
    We whisper together
    Are quiet and meaningless
    As wind in dry grass
    Or rats' feet over broken glass
    In our dry cellar
    ~~T.S. Eliot

    I didn't want to jump ahead in the ebook I'm reading, so I grabbed the book physically closest.
