Friday 56: Vampire Diaries

* 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.


I have eager players today! Of course, I did say I was going to post early for my overseas players but I should be forgiven, given that yesterday was our national day of gluttony (not unlike the rest of the year but this is government sanctioned) also known as the US Thanksgiving. This is day we pretend we were friends with the Natives that lived here before our European ancestors and give thanks for them saving us from starvation. As there is nothing I can do as a woman in the 21st century to remedy the situation, I also cook lots of food and give thanks for my many blessings (although I cook Tofurky - which is tasty, tasty, tasty. I got lots of praise for it).

Today I have brought my laptop into my bedroom to huddle under the electric blanket while I check emails and wait for the heater to warm up the house. It's actually getting cold here finally. So the closest to me is the book sitting on my night stand that I just finished last night, The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening and The Struggle. I read these in high school but wanted to again since the CW has made a new show of it. Yes, as I remember, the books are much better.

"Now you, Elena," Meredith pricked Elena's thumb efficiently, and then squeezed it to get a drop of blood.

Ahhh . . . the laptop in-my-bedroom with-the-electric-blanket ritual! Tis a habit of mine too!

I love your F56! Straight to the point with mystery too.

My F56 too.

Yes, I love when the 56 works out that way!

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving - very good sentence! Mine sort of worked too...

How I wish for an electric blanket! Here in Australia we are melting in the heat! A belated happy Thanksgiving to all those in the USA! Here's my Friday 56:

Today seems to be a day of great 56s.

Happy post-Thanksgiving and keep warm.

Here’s my 56 offering.

If I wasn't informed that this line was from a vampire book, I would think that this is a book about diabetes or diabetes sufferers :)

I've been debating about reading these because I do really like the CW show. Thanks for letting us know that the books are better! I;m off to buy them now...

Some 56 are better than others. That was a good one.

Dropping by a bit late, this is my first Friday 56 so I'm hoping I did it correctly.
