Book Beginnings on Friday/The Friday 56 - September 29th

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 is what I'm reading this week...


Dressed in a black and white dress, adorned with a red sash and matching gardening boots, I marched through the front doors of Shady Acres retirement community to begin my new job as gardener slash event coordinator. The boots were to help me look the part. One phone call stating that I had been a third grade teacher and they'd hired me sight unseen. The director had laughed and said if I could handle thirty rowdy children I should be able to handle a retirement home of adults.

Friday 56...

From 56% on my Kindle...

"Why do so many of my employees know so little about the services we offer? Does nobody read their employee packet?"


  1. I love that cover...and I enjoy stories with elderly people. I wonder if that is because I am getting up there in age? LOL.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “SAY YOU’RE SORRY”

  2. I like the beginning. It seems interesting.

  3. I like that beginning too. Pulls the reader right in. Happy weekend!

  4. I like both the beginning and the 56. Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things soon and start playing these memes again.

  5. It sounds like my kinda read! I like the beginning as well as the 5 % excerpt! Going to add it to my tbr!
    Here's my Friday Reads

  6. Looks like they got the cover right! :)
