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: Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee
Since Atlanta, she had looked out the dining-car window with a delight almost physical.Friday 56:
"Jem," she said, "if there's gonna be this man we'll need somebody else. Want me to run get Bennett?"Comments: I just got my copy of the much anticipated second book by Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman. I've only read a few pages so far and I've done it with much trepidation since rumors are already swirling around that I am not going to like this Atticus Finch. However, I love the opening line. It feels like classic Harper Lee. And the Friday 56 quote I selected for two reasons. First because it is a flashback to her childhood with Dill and Jem, when they would make up scenes to enact. Secondly, my last name is Bennett. I like the idea they have a friend with that name, even if he is off the scene really.
