Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read making sure you include the title and author so others know what you're reading. Here's mine:
"I stare down at my shoes, watching as a fine layer of ash settles on the worn leather."
The Friday 56 is a fun meme hosted Storytime with Tonya. Here are the rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you'd like), along with these instructions on your blog or (if you don't have your own blog) in the comments section here.
* Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
"In his hands he holds a piece of thin rope, less than a foot in length, too short for even him to fashion into a usable noose."
If you play along... let me know!
