Book Beginnings and Friday 56 – June 24th

24 Jun

Book Beginnings

Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Katy at A Few More Pages.  

Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you’re reading.

If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.

No one can figure out where the terrible smell is coming from, but everyone on the bus this morning can smell it and has an opinion.”

The Friday 56

Rules:

  • 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 Freda’s Voice
  • Post a link along with your post back to Freda’s Voice

Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
