Friday 56: A Crown of Swords



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's selection comes from A Crown of Swords, the seventh book in the WOT saga. Yes folks, I am on book 7! YAYYY My journey through reading them all again is coming to a close (maybe). I know I haven't kept everyone up to date on it but it started to seem as if I was saying the same things over and over so I thought I'd spare everyone that! So, here's is my F56 for this week:

The Banner of Light, some called it, or al'Thor's Banner. Others had darker names, and shivered when they spoke them in whispers.

I love this book. I am anxiously awaiting my favorite moment, captured beautifully in this cover from the new ebook version:



I have to say I am very impressed with this and all the ebook versions of the covers. My favorite is the one depicting Mat for the Shadow Rising, which I will let you go check out on your own. It's gorgeous! They are so much better than the original, very cheesy, covers:

I am so ashamed to admit that have read all the books only once all the way to the newest which is yet to be cracked open and is on my TBR shelf for many months. Those E-Book covers rock, do not and will not get an e-reader for awhile yet but you are right the original book covers are very cheesy, they do not take away from the wonderful stories though.
