the friday 56


Rules: 

*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 just barely starting The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams.


From page 12:

"Edith sorted these," Da said, arranging the piles on the sorting table.
"You mean Aunty Dittie?"
"The very same."
"Is she a lexi--, lexiographa, like you?"
"Lexicographer.  No.  But she is a very learned lady and we are lucky she has taken on the Dictionary as her hobby.  There's not a week goes by without a letter from Dittie to Dr. Murray with a word, or copy for the next section."
