Friday 56: Sunset



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!

This week I'm reading a book of short stories by Stephen King, Just After Sunset. This selection is from the story "The Gingerbread Girl," which I really liked.

There was no time to waste congratulating herself, and not just because she might hear the Pillbox's front door open anytime. She had other problems.

I don't read Stephen King. Too scary. But this book sounds like a page-turner... :)

Happy Friday to you too!

I used to read Stephen King but haven't read anything by him in a long time. I'd like to read his latest, though. Mine is here. It's the closest "book" I had. :)

oh, ok. Here's the next sentence, but it's not going to clear anything up!

Her muscles were strained and trembling from trying to walk in what was almost a sitting position; she felt like an out-of-condition amateur attempting some outrageous tantra yoga position.

hahaha! I have someone who plays that is in Australia so I told her I'd post on Thursday nights so she wouldn't have to wait if she wanted to play. There'll be another one posting tonight for tomorrow's 56.

I don't have a fully running blog so here is my Friday 56.

I knew we'd hit the boondocks when we saw something far stranger than a farm animal emerge about twenty feet in front of the van.
