~The Friday 56~

* 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 Tonya's blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

YAYYYY! He is one of my favorite authors but I haven't read this one. I can't wait to read your review!

Good one Missy. I have a couple of his books to read.

I don't like how she's treating the books... =/

This is a cool meme! It's almost not Friday anymore, but I think I'll take part next week. =)
