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.
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.
This week I am spotlighting my current read, Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee. I really lucked out by getting my hands on this so early! It was just released on the fourteenth, but I've already heard so much about it - specifically the portrayal of a certain beloved character. For me this is a book I know I have to read because I loved To Kill A Mockingbird so much, but I'm not sure if I really want it for the same reason especially considering what I've heard. I am on page 106 out of 278, and I think I'm just about to get right into the thick of it.
Since Atlanta, she had looked out the dining-car window with a delight almost physical.
"You want to do something about it?" she asked politely, clenching her fists."
Jem said, "You can be Mr. Damon, Dill. He's always funny and he saves everybody in the end. You know, he always blesses everything."
"Bless my insurance policy," said Dill, hooking his thumbs through invisible suspenders. "Oh all right."
