The Friday 56

21 Aug

From Storytime With Tonya and Friends:

* 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 this blog.
* 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.

Laced with MagicOnce again,the nearest book is the one I’m currently reading, Laced with Magic by Barbara Bretton.  The audiobook I’m listening to is actually closer, but we won’t go there!

I drummed the steering wheel with my thumbs. She watched as a small blue light flickered to life behind the front window, then grew into obvious flame the color of a cartoon version of a Caribbean sea.

The blue light is a way of passing messages– and quite a few (intended and unintended) are communicated with that flare.

      Yep, the main character runs a knitting/yarn store, when she’s not off saving her town from supernatural disaster!

    I keep seeing this author and the subject sounds like something I would like. I’m going to have to look her up.

    Interesting quote! It seems like this 56/5 formula really turns up good stuff!

    This sampling of the book peeks my interest in this book.
