The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are pretty simple:
- Grab a book, any book.
- Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s OK.)
- Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it).
- Post it.
- Add the url to your post on Freda’s Voice.
The book I chose this week is Newes from the Dead by Mary Hooper.
‘I felt horrid and wicked and ashamed of myself. Poor John, a kindly fellow, to be treated so when he’d done nothing wrong. To have scrubbed his blacksmith’s sooty hands and pared his nails for my sake, only to be cast aside.’
