The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted over at Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple and go something like this.
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
3. Find any sentence, (or a few, just don’t spoil it)
4. Post it.
5. Add the post url, not your blog url to the Linky.
6. Tweet it #Friday56 (not an official Freda’s Voice rule)
Hi all, it’s been a long time since I posted here, which I won’t get into at this time. But know that I have missed blogging and our interactions.
Having said that my plan is to slowly get back to talking about books on this platform, and what better way to do that than with a Friday 56. So let’s get to it!
I mentioned this book in my WWW Wednesday post as the book I’m currently reading. It’s for the Black Future Book Club over on Booktube. Like I said I haven’t gotten very far because I need to finish a paper for school.
And, now for the shameless plug. If you’ve read it or interested in reading it or just want to join the discussion come join us on October 10th at 12 pm EST/1 pm CST.
Letitia put the sheriff’s shotgun into the back of the Packard. Atticus picked up the gas can – still half full – and stowed it in back as well. Then, while Letitia ran around to the passenger’s side and climbed in the front seat, he stood over the sheriff, holding Deputy Eastchurch’s shotgun, and asked himself another question.
“Atticus!” George said. “Come on!”
“Hell with it,” Atticus said. He slid the shotgun into the Packard beside the other one and climbed in after it. George started the engine.
Atticus had pulled tailgate shut and was about to close the hatch when he saw the other car. It was back at the bend in the road, it’s engine and headlights off, only visible because of the flames from the burning wreck reflecting off its silver skin.
Lovecraft Country pg. 56
