The Friday 56

I discovered a new meme today in a post at Suko’s Notebook. It’s called Friday 56 and is hosted by Freda’s Voice.

• Grab a book, any book.
• Turn to page 56.
• Find any sentence that grabs you.
• Post it.
• Link it at Freda’s Voice

Looks like fun so I’ll give it a go.

The two books I’m reading now are ARCs so page 56 may not really be page 56 in the finished copy. The previous book I read was an audiobook. No good either. So I grabbed the next book in line to be read, a finished copy of Running The Books by Avi Steinberg, The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian.

“For the first two classes, I had brought in three short readings — poems by Philip Larkin and Amiri Baraka and a passage from Beloved by Toni Morrison.”

I’m looking forward to this book. And, I’ll also mention that I’m hosting a giveaway to win a copy. That’s not why I chose it but I thought I’d mention it.
