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: Lit Up: One Reporter. Three Schools. Twenty-Four Books that Can Change Lives. by David Denby
The First Days of English 10G: A teacher was speaking. "As we develop a community here, and I see you thinking about a text, your voice is as important as my voice. What you say is as important as what I say."Friday 56:
The discussion turned to happiness. The people in Huxley's new world are drugged and sated. But is it real? Can there be such a thing as false happiness? "Leonardo," Mr. Leon said, "would you rather be unhappy or falsely happy?"Comment: I WISH I had had a good English lit class. I hope to learn a ton from this book.
I think I'd have to be in the right frame of mind to read this book! Usually, I read for escape and entertainment, but this does sound interesting.ReplyDelete
My Friday post features A NEW DAWN IN DEER ISLE.
This is on my TBR list. Now to ponder the question -- I'd rather be falsely happy as long as I didn't find out it was false, lol.ReplyDelete

Unhappy or falsely happy. Right away I wanted to say falsely happy. However, the more I thought about it, I think I'd rather be unhappy because that would at least be true. I'd love for to check out mine at http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewSTTGPJReplyDelete
