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.
I'm also taking part in Book Beginnings, a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader. The rules are pretty simple - you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires. Don't forget to link up your post's url with Rose City Reader.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone! I hope you find everything you wanted under your tree!
This week I'm spotlighting my next read, Ross Poldark (Poldark #1) by Winston Graham. I really enjoyed watching the show starring Aidan Turner when it aired on Masterpiece, and I can't wait until the next season begins. I've had this on hold at the library since the middle of August and it finally came in! I'm so excited to begin reading!
Joshua Poldark died in March 1783. In February of that year, feeling that his tenure was becoming short, he sent for his brother from Trenwith.
After a minute he shook some water off his coat and began the trip back. Ross followed him with an expression that was half grim, half ironic. For Francis the incident might have betrayed the extent of his cousin's resentment - but Ross felt it should have also shown him its limitations.
It had done that much for himself.
