*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 gotten into a new book this week from my book club’s selection. It’s Claire of the Sea Light by Edwidge Danticat and I’m really enjoying it so far. Here’s a great quote from page 56. Two of the characters are debating what to name their daughter and the mother has proposed the name Rose.

Whatever she’d proposed would have been okay with him, because he was convinced, just as the doctor was, that the child would not live even an hour, much less a day.

I didn’t expect to like this story so much but it’s impressed me very quickly. I’m a fan and I think it will be a good book discussion.

Until next time, write on.
