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. This is the book I'm reading right now:
Book Title: The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
This is the story of what a Woman's patience can endure, and what a Man's resolution can achieve.Friday 56:
'Mr. Hartright, you surprise me. Whatever women may be, I thought that men, in the nineteenth century, were above superstition.'Comments: I actually haven't started this book yet. I am determined to finish the other book I have going before jumping in to this one. The Woman in White is my Classics Club Spin book. I didn't look at it carefully before adding it on my list or I might have thought twice about it since it is over 600 pages long. We only have five weeks for the challenge so I must get going on it soon and fast. The comments I've gotten from people who have read it is that it is an enjoyable book. It is considered the first in sensational genre. It was published in 1860. I like these quotes, especially the one from page 56. It makes me laugh to hear the statement " I thought that men, in the nineteenth century..." since we could easily just change the century and say the same thing.
