The Friday 56

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted over at Freda’s Voice. The rules are fairly 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 few, just don’t spoil it)
4.  Post it.
5.  Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
6. Tweet it #Friday56 (not an official Freda’s Voice rule)

2. A 20th Century Classic
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe

3. A Classic by a Woman Author
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee Continue reading
