Friday 56:Thirteen

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.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Tonight (I'm posting this Thursday night) the closest book to me is The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. I just finished this literally 2 minutes ago. Wonderful book! I'll post a review of it tomorrow along with a review of The Mystery of Grace by Charles de Lint, which I finished listening to this afternoon while I was cooking dinner (Polenta: mmmmmmmmmmm).

"One gets so used to one's own horrors, one forgets how they must seem to other people," I wrote at last in the middle column, and in the left I added a note describing the way she closed the finger of her good hand over the closed fist of the damaged one.

I tried to listen to The Thirteenth Tale on audio and just couldn't get into it. The book sounds like a good one so I think I need to actually "read" it!

Here is my 56 this week.

It's hard to say since I read it but I have found the books I love to read - fantasy, sci-fi, thrillers - sometimes are better read and the ones that I would never pick up to read - chick lit - are better in audio.

I've never 'read' any audio books before, but I will probably end up starting sooner or later. It might be something I can do while I'm working..lol.
