the friday 56


*Grab a book, any book. 

*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.) 

*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) 

*Post it. 

I'm reading History of the Rain

From 9%:

Next thing Grandfather knows he's on a stretcher.  He's not in Paradise; there are no gold streets, no immortal wheat, not a single Cherub.  Instead he's in that bounce that I know too, when you're tied into the stretcher and they carry you along and all you can see is the sky above moving backwards like you're floating downriver and thinking how peculiar it is to be on your back moving through the world.
