The Friday 56

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.

This week I'm reading...

From page 56 on my Nook...

Each short, sudden drop of the elevator was accompanied by a loud grinding of gears, causing me to wonder if the elevator's mechanical components had received the same restorative attention.

I gripped onto the side railing as the elevator paused at the first floor. The metal doors slid open to reveal an elderly man in an expensive-looking suit and highly polished shoes.


  1. Considering she 'gripped' the side railing, I'm going to assume the cat isn't the protagonist in this book! I like the writing style though, it's descriptive without overloading me with details! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Cute cover and I hope the elevator also received the restorative treatment! I'm always a little bit nervous in elevators.

  3. Great excerpt! Love that cover, too....thanks for sharing.

  4. If there is a cat on the cover I will pick it up. My Post

  5. Being in an elevator that begins to do funny things is a frightening experience . . .

  6. Yikes! I'd hate to be in an elevator that drops suddenly. Grinding gears would freak me out too. I'd dash past the man in the nice suit and jump out immediately.

  7. I love the cover, and your "56" makes me wonder what will happen next.

  8. Love the cover! I'd keep reading, even though I don't do elevators unless there's no other option.

  9. Great cover and excerpt! I wonder what is going to happen next. Thanks for the visit to my blog.

  10. If cats really do have 9 lives, I know a cat that will outlive us all! :-)
    Well, can't fix the elevator, but at least sharp dressed people live there and may possibly die in the elevator. ;-)
