The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice.
Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't select their favorite, coolest or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading.
Book: The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
"There was a time in Africa the people could fly. Mauma told me this one night when I was ten years old."
"One morning while Charleston turned miserably on the brazier of summer, Hetty and I lay flat on our stomachs on the rug in my room while I read aloud from Don Quixote."
My thoughts: Sue Monk Kidd is back!!!! I loved The Secret Life of Bees so much and have waited for years for another gem from her. This book about slavery and feminism is shaping up to me a good one. I especially like the quote from page 56. I just can picture it...being so hot that it feels like being on the BBQ rotisserie. That is not a good hot!
