e Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's VoiceFind a quote from page 56.

I'm currently reading-

Title: The First Phone Call From Heaven by Mitch Albom

Book Beginning: 
On the day the world received its first phone call from heaven, Tess Rafferty was unwrapping a box of teabags. Drrrrnnn!
Friday 56: 
"Hell, the Bible says God spoke through a burning bush," Fred said. "Is that any stranger than a telephone?"
Comment: I just started this book by a favorite author, Mitch Albom. Every book I've read by him has a spiritual aspect. This one is no exception. Members of small community start receiving calls from heaven, or people who have died. Is it really happening or is it a gag trick? No one knows.



  1. That sounds like a really good concept so I hope it IS really good!

  2. Wow, I LOVE the 56 line! So true haha. Happy reading!
