19 Dec

Welcome to the Quiet Day at Work edition of 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 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’ve got a new ebook I’m working my way though now, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. This is a really cool YA story and I’m really excited about grabbing it. Here’s a quote from page 56 (per my iPhone reader)

I knew I probably wouldn’t be able to fall back asleep, so I decided to kill the remaining hours until dawn by brushing up on a few coin-op classics.

I don’t know too much about these characters yet, but I think this one summarizes Wade well. He’s completely obsessed with finding the hidden Easter Egg inside the game developed by an 80s obsessed genius. Playing retro video games may help him solve the puzzle so he’s ready to do it. I’m enjoying this book so far and keep thinking parts of it would make a good movie, but parts of it would be awful, haha.

While you’re here, are you interested in joining an on-line book club? Do you like reading books with your friends and talking about them? My third edition of ‘Read Along With Me’ will begin in January. We’re selecting our book now so vote and send me and email if you’re interested in participating.


Until next time, write on.

You can follow me on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at And as always, feel free to leave a comment!

      So far I’m really enjoying it. I have my mom’s graduation from her masters program this morning and then I’m going to close out the voting. You’ll hear from me by the end of the day. 🙂
