Friday 56: Blackout by Connie Willis

23 Apr

cover of Blackout by Connie WillisIt’s been quite a while since I participated, but I wanted to join back up with the Friday 56 from Storytime With Tonya and Friends .

The rules are:

* 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.

I’ve got Blackout by Connie Willis at hand. I’d hoped to start reading it Thursday, but that didn’t work out. Hopefully, Friday will allow more book time.

I love Connie Willis, and her time travel books are some of her strongest.

So, here’s my quote:

You can figure out the time later, he thought. Right now you need to find out where you are. The waves sounded level with him, not somewhere below. Good.

    Wow – your sentence pretty much clues us in as to the time travel theme!

    I have been out of the loop for a couple weeks as well but mine is up this week here…

    Sounds interesting. I’ve never read any of this author’s books. I’ll have to check them out. Have a great day!
