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 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.

I just started a new title, The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri and I’m not even on page 56 yet. I really hope reading this page doesn’t give too much away! Here’s the quote I chose:

His parents have told him that at school, instead of being called Gogol, he will be called by a new name, a good name, which his parents have finally decided on, just in time for him to begin his formal education.

I don’t think this gives away too much because I think this will be a major sticking point in the novel. I’m only as far as Gogol’s birth but I figured that he would be the title character, the namesake. I’m curious what the reason for a name change is. This book has come highly recommended and I’m pumped to keep reading.

Until next time, write on.
