The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Find a quote from page 56.
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:
Title: Ishmael: An Adventure of the Mind and Spirit by Daniel Quinn.
The first time I read the ad, I choked and cursed and spat and threw the paper to the floor. Since even this didn't seem to be quite enough, I snatched it up, marched into the kitchen, and shoved it into the trash.Friday 56:
Nothing much came out of me for ninety seconds or so, except maybe waves of baffled fury. Then I said, "That's not fair."Comment: I am really taken with this book, though I am not far into it. The story line is actually not unfolding as I expected. Both of these quotes express how I have felt at times.
Both of those quotes made me smile, I can really relate to those feelings!ReplyDelete
This isn't a title I'm at all familiar with but loved the little teasers so I may have to give it a shot!ReplyDelete
I like when a book surprises me. Happy reading.ReplyDelete

I want to know what is in the ad!ReplyDelete
I am dying to know what was in the ad! Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
OMG. I love that book! It is one that has been very instrumental in my life. Enjoy! I really need to read it again.ReplyDelete
I'm glad to know someone else has heard of it. It is on the summer reading list for our in-coming seniors and I figured I'd best read at least a few of the books on the list. So far, so good. I can tell it is going to be very philosophical.Delete
I like both quotes. I haven't heard of this book before and hope you are enjoying it. This week I am spotlighting Dragonseye by Anne McCaffrey which has been living on TBR mountain forever. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Hi, Anne - I can certainly relate with the feelings expressed by the protagonist. Sometimes you just have to act out the anger a little longer until you feel it is enough. Otherwise, you'd bite off the head of the first person to speak to you. :)ReplyDelete

Easy feelings to relate to at times. Happy Friday!ReplyDelete
Lots of anger from this narrator. I hope he finds some peace.ReplyDelete
I'm curious over the beginning and the animosity.ReplyDelete
I find the snippets quite intriguing...I'm off to find out more about this book.ReplyDelete
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. There were lots of things to think about for sure.ReplyDelete
