Friday 56, 10-Oct-2014

10 Oct

Hey all!

I’ve been seeing a decline in WWW Wednesday participation in the last few weeks, so I’ve decided to switch to a different meme, The Friday 56 hosted by Freda on Freda’s Voice. Head on over there and check out the other participating blogs.

Friday 56

The way this meme works is pretty simple. If you want to join in, head over to Freda’s blog and add your link.

*Grab a book, any book (I’ll grab the one I’m currently reading)
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.

And now, for my first edition of the Friday 56! This is from one of my current reads, Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling.

Thus, during the summer of 1508 Rosselli and his team worked well into the evenings, the din of their hammers and chisels drowning out the chanting of the choir a few yards below.

I like this sentence because it gives us some of author Ross King’s prose and paints a nice pictures of the situation in which Michelangelo painted and worked during the years of the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Rosselli was preparing the ceiling for Michelangelo to begin work and wanted to artist to begin before the cold winter set in.

Well, there’s my first Friday 56! I’ll say to all new readers here that I do read mostly fiction, but this is a non-fiction thrown in for good measure. I’ll be back next week with more!

Until next time, write on.
