Friday 56: 4/23/09

* 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.


This is from Yarrow by Charles De Lint but there's only 4 sentences on page 56 so I used the first on page 57.

Lisa Henderson hurried south along Bank Street, turned left on Sunnyside then right on Willard. She glanced at her watch: 9:45. Her mother was going to kill her.

Trust me, this does not do Charles de Lint justice.

I like it! Short and sweet. Mine was just boring without the next two sentences.

This is my first Friday 56:

"The kids stood still for a moment, then took off down the street. They were heading straight for the public library." from The Man Who Ate the 747.
I had to add the bonus sentence since I am a librarian :) I loved this book and will be posting my review tomorrow.
