I was just over at Part Time Monster reading Diana’s Friday Fifty Six and I thought, THIS IS THE BEST IDEA EVER! I MUST JOIN!
So, essentially, if you haven’t heard about this lovely link up, the rules are simple–turn to page fifty-six in any book and pick a sentence or a few sentences to show case in the post. I love this idea 1) because I love quotes in general and 2) it sounds like the perfect way to discover new books and get a taste for those books.
Without further ado, I give you my first Friday Fifty-Six.
Sammy Davis Junior, Junior converted her attention from masticating her tail to trying to lick clean the hero’s spectacles, which I will tell you were in need of cleaning. I write that she was trying because the hero was not being sociable.
—Everything is Illuminated, Jonathan Safron Foer
I admit, I am just four pages shy of page fifty-six in this absolutely fantastic, funny, strange, hilarious, and overall awesome novel. This was a little teaser for me for the coming pages and, as with every page so far, it did not disappoint.
The Friday 56 link up is hosted by Freda’s Voice.
