The Friday 56: 1-29-2010

* 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 like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

"Now that things have settled down to a dull roar, I'm going to take a batch of scones, a jar of fig jam, and a big thermos of lemonade over to the fellows who are working on the Journey's End Church." Last month, the church, which was just down the frontage road from the Cackleberry Club, had been tragically torched by an arsonist. (Eggs Benedict Arnold by Laura Childs, p56)

I'm reading "A Wild Haruki Chase: Reading Murakami Around the World," so it was the nearest book. Page 56 says, "Most American readers who like Haruki Murakami's stories do not merely like them. They fall in love." I loved that line because its the complete truth for me.
