The Friday 56 is a book meme hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the participation rules couldn’t be simpler. You just pick any book you want, flip to page 56 (or 56% for e-readers), and choose a non-spoilery sentence or two to share with the world.
From page 56:
“I have an idea for a new book. It’s a novel about a beautiful yet sensitive author whose spirit is crushed by her domineering editor. Do you like it?”
For my first Friday 56, I had to go with one of the first books I read after college, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. It was a New York Times Bestseller at the time, so a bunch of you have probably already read it. Regardless of whether you have or not, maybe this quote will inspire you to pick it up 🙂
Do you have your own Friday 56? Let me know in the comments!
