Rose City Reader, is hosting Book beginnings on Friday. She says:
Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.
Freda’s voice is hosting Friday 56 and the rules are:
*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)
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It's that simple.
My book this week is The Temporary Gentleman by Sebastian Barry
'It's a beautiful night and no mistake. You would never think there was a war somewhere.'
Page 56 (57 since 56 is an empty page):
When my brother Tom was still a teenager he got a job as the organist at the Picture House in Sligo. It is not given to every man to see his brother in such a guise.
