The Friday 56: Four Past

* 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.


Can you believe I almost FORGOT it was Friday. I got up, let the dogs outside, made coffee, was up for a little while and then it hit me IT'S FRIDAY. It's weird how you can lose track of the days when you don't have a schedule. The vacation has been nice but I am starting to get BORED. I will actually be glad to go back to work on Monday, even if it is the same old job and not the new one (still keeping fingers crossed!).

Today's selection comes from The Lanogoliers, a short story in Stephen King's Four Past Midnight, since I had it out yesterday to talk about. It never got put away.

"We'll have to capture him as soon as we land," Albert said, scraping one hand feverishly up the side of his face. "You, me, Mr. Gaffney, and that Brittish guy. He looks tough."

I'm thinking of changing the logo for this meme. In your comments today, please let me know if you like it or want to keep the old one.

Your 56 looks like a good one. :) Why not let people chose whichever 56 logo they want to use. Make two or three and have them on your side bar... Up to you. People like choices and can be in the mood for a different logo from time to time. My Friday 56 is posted here! Happy New Year.

Good idea, Lorielle. I had a lot of fun making the new one. Picking out books and pasting the the picture together. I could have done a lot more.

Oh, I like Lorielle's idea.

Here's mine:

"Front page of the Daily Prophet, I expect, cauldron leaks."

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
J.K. Rowling

There are so many iconic words in that sentence that it's probably not even necessary to name the book! I'm so glad you're reading these!

Happy New Year, everyone!
