Book Beginnings on Friday/The Friday 56 - October 13th

This is a fun meme to do hosted by Freda's Voice. If you'd like to join on the fun go to The Friday 56.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it here.

It's that simple.

I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader.

This week I'm reading...


Time to move on. I crossed the Green and headed for the library. A guest of wind bowed the branches of the nearby trees, showering me with red and yellow leaves. I paused to inhale the tangy air. It was a glorious October morning, and I stood in the center of the most glorious setting - the historic town of Clover Ridge, Connecticut. This was my family's hometown, where I'd spent my summers as a kid. Elegant, well-preserved homes bordered one side of the Green, and an array of shops, Zagat-rated restaurants, and galleries bordered the other three sides. We were a stone's thrown from the Long Island Sound and a few miles from the river, with a low mountain range to the west. Picturesque by anyone's standards - mine included - but my need to leave was growing stronger every day.

Friday 56...

From 56% on my Kindle...

The cottage was lovely, but it was also very isolated.


  1. I love cozies during the fall and winter. I snuggle up with a cuppa hot tea and lose myself for a few hours:)

    I wonder why she wants to leave so much?

    Here's mine: “HER LAST GOODBYE”

  4. Wow, if I was there, I definitely wouldn't want to leave.
