Another week of participating in 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 Tonya’s blog.
* Post a link along with your post back to Tonya’s blog.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
Up this time is an upcoming book club pick, The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood. I’m finding it very slow going, but I’m approaching the end now. Here’s the quote:
Every night yearn for sleep, I strive for it; yet it flutters on ahead of me like a sooty curtain. There are sleeping pills, or course, but the doctor has warned me against them.
So, what do you think? Do those words call to you?
