Book Beginnings (a la Rose City Reader)
“I watch his car as it pulls into the parking lot. I watch him get out of it. I am in the corner of his eye, moving toward its center… but he isn’t looking for me.”
First Impression: Aw, again, I can’t really claim a first impression as I read every day so recently.
The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. Join in every Friday, the rules are simple.
Rules: *Grab a book, any book. *Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it. *Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.
“I loose track. Of time. Of what I’m thinking. Of where I am and who I am. I even lose track of the song. I loose track of everything but the boy in the tie across from me, who is releasing himself as well. I can tell, as one who knows.
Then it all ends. A song is cut short. I feel like a cartoon character, holding for a minute in the air, then looking down and falling to earth.”
