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.
This week I’m going to be quoting the book I’m currently reading, The Magicians’ Guild by Trudi Canavan.
‘Who said we were conducting business?’ Dannyl smiled and took a sip from his cup. ‘Think about it. The Thieves know the slums far better than we could ever hope to. They’re in a better position to find the girl than we – and I’m sure they’d prefer to look for her themselves than have us snooping around their domain. We have only to make it appear to the King that we have persuaded the Thieves into turning the girl over and we’ll have all the approval we need.’
So what do you think? I think that paragraph gives you a good insight into the style the book is written in.
If you have a Friday 56 post of your own go ahead and leave the link for it in the comments so I can check it out.
