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.
