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: Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
My name is India Opal Buloni, and last summer my daddy, the preacher, sent me to the store for a box of macaroni-and-cheese, some white rice, and two tomatoes and I came back with a dog.Friday 56:
And Winn-Dixie stood and stared back at her. He didn't hardly move. He didn't wag his tail. He didn't smile...He just stared at Gertrude [a parrot] and she stared at him. And then she spread her wings out real far and flew and landed on top of Winn-Dixie's head.Comment: We had to have our dog put to "sleep" last night so I am feeling quite sad and tender today. I'd be honored if you would check out the tribute I wrote to Muffy here. Because of my sadness, today I decided to read a quick, middle-grade book about a wonderful dog, Because of Winn-Dixie written by a masterful author. Don't you just love the book beginning? I'm hoping that Winn-Dixie will work her magic on me like she did for Opal.
