Friday 56: Carnival


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!

I read a review of Carnival by Elizabeth Bear recently and it sounded so good that I immediately went out to Paperback Swap and ordered it. It came in and is still sitting on my desk while I read other things! hehe. I'm such an impulse buyer.

"A planet like this," Michelangelo said, "and they're wearing nonrenewables and doing who-knows-what to the ecosystem. Haven't seen forests like that--"
--outside of old 2-D movies and documentaries about pre-Change, pre-Diaspora Old Earth.

I too am a terrible impulse buyer. Books sound good so I add them to my TBR stack.

This one arrived and I started reading immediately: Waking the Witch by Kelley Armstrong. Happy reading!

Scary quote...I, too, have such a huge TBR pile - but it's fun!

Mine is Agatha Christie!

Nice tease and it says so much about the book too!

My teaser is up too, and not so teasing...

I love the bookswap sites! I have huge wishlists on PBS and Bookmooch and am able to clear off my shelves almost every week. Such a good idea!

Kah Woei - I would love to tell you but, I haven't read it yet! I don't think so though.

Buffy - if you mean Michelangelo the painter no, I think it's another character.

Gaby - You just created a monster! I didn't know about BookMooch til just now...

I think your Blog if awesome - if you stop by mine, you can pick up a Versatile Blogger Award I want to pass on to you!

Donna said...

I really enjoy the Friday 56 meme. I see another blogger has already nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Please accept my nomination as well. Obviously one set of lists should work for both nominations. Congratulations! I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Please access it at your convenience and be sure to pass it on to other deserving bloggers. Enjoy!
