Friday 56: Week 41

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions
on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
Post a link along with your post back to this blog and to Storytime with Tonya and Friends at
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Here's mine from Within the Hollow Crown: A Valiant King's Struggle to Save His Country, His Dynasty, and His Love by Margaret Campbell Barnes. Richard II is fourteen years old and his country is facing its first peasant uprising - and the young king rises to the challenge.

Richard heard it too, together with a lot of other wild suggestions. "Don't worry, my dear," he said soothingly. "Walworth won't let them get into London. He'll raise the movable bit of the bridge first."


  1. I'm getting ready to mail out this signed copy of Carol Burnett's book, so that is the closest book. The sentence is not a funny one as I would expect, but a dramatic one.

    Enjoy the weekend- it's going be a beautiful one here!
