The Friday 56: Bloodstream

* 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.

From Bloodstream by Tess Gerritsen:

Something wasn't right. It was after dark, and the door should have been latched to protect the animals.

I haven't actually read this and was not planning on it. It was the closest book because my mom left it here! But this sentence is in intriguing...

The Human Stain by Philip Roth.

I started this months ago, put it down and haven't been able to make myself pick it back up :)

I know what you mean...I keep picking up and putting down Catch-22. I just can't seem to make myself finish it. I've put it down again and am reading The Road now.
