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 The Ghost and Mrs. Muir by R.A. Dick and it's thoroughly enjoyable!

From page 52:

"What you ought to do," said Eva, "is to start a few hens.  You've plenty of room out at the back, and you could sell the eggs."

"I don't know anything about hens," said Lucy.

"Well, you could learn, my dear child, you could learn," said Eva.

She had not been in the house twenty-four hours, but already she had rearranged Lucy's entire way of living to her own satisfaction, or rather she had arranged it in her own mind, for dear little Lucy was proving surprisingly obstinate about carrying out her advice.

I remember there being a TV show by this title YEARS ago. Obviously I am old to remember this. Ha! My Friday quotes are here

I have seen the old show too, back in the 80's. Did not even know it was based on a book! :-) Happy weekend!

I loved the old movie, but I didn't know there was a tv show or a book! I'm going to have to look into those. :)

I didn't realize this was a book first! I will have to look for it. I am glad you enjoyed it! Have a great week.
