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:

Lem said to him in a low voice, "Iffen I only had my sweetheart here, to sing and dance." Jody asked him brashly, "who-all's your sweetheart?"Comments: I am finally reading this classic coming-of-age tale which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1938.

Have you every read this classic? What are your memories of it?
