The Friday 56: From The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg


Welcome to The Friday 56, a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.

These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.


Jamie looked over at Claudia; he shouldn't have.  Claudia looked as satisfied as the bronze statue of the Egyptian cat she was standing near.  The only difference between them was that the cat wore tiny golden earrings and looked a trifle less smug.

[While at my local thrift shop, I spotted this classic in paperback.  Somehow, I've never read it, so I figured I better grab it while I could.]

  1. I've never read this book, but I've heard about it. I think it's time to go to the library and check it out.

    1. It's always fun to see what they have! :) It's also cool to find a book character with your own name!
