Book Beginnings on Friday is hosted by Rose City Reader. Share the opening quote from the book.
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:
Comments: I've heard such good things about El Deafo by Cece Bell. I saw it today at the public library as I was walking through after returning other books. On an impulse I picked it up. I hadn't realized it was a graphic novel. The text is hard to read on these small photos so let me summarize. The girl is just a regular kid who loves to sing and wear her bathing suit. She gets meningitis and loses her hearing. (Pages 1-11). On page 56 she is debating whether she should continue her friendship with Laura, a bully who accepts her hearing aids but makes her feel bad about herself. I am looking forward to reading more.
