Friday 56: Blind Hope

Dear Readers, 

Do you want to play along? If you have the extra time and love reading books, better yet just simply grabbing the book that is closest to you, then join in our weekly Friday 56 meme. It is an easy post to share with everyone and I always look forward to seeing what everyone is reading. Here are the guidelines from Gaby and Tonya. By the way, stop by their blogs if you have a minute. These gals are great and they have a lot going on at their site with their community of readers.

 * Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions 
on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
Post a link along with your post back to this blog Starting Fresh and to Storytime with Tonya and Friends
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

 Here's the fifth sentence on page 56 of a paperback book that I'm reading at the moment. I'm looking forward to posting my review on the main characters and layout of the story in the near future. You know how it goes with animal stories... they leave you crying or filled with joy!

"Honestly, as unpleasant as our weak and rough places are, they all can be used to teach us the antithesis of the very issues we struggle with."
From "Blind Hope: An Unwanted Dog & the Woman She Rescued" by Kim Meeder and Laurie Sacher.

So what are you currently reading that has grabbed your heart and inspires you so?

Happy Friday!

  1. Hi LadyD,

    I really like the new layout of your blog!

    Thanks for dropping by Starting Fresh and participating in the Friday 56.


  2. Oh wow!
    That quote is insightful.
    I like it.
    I can't read animal stories unless they're in mysteries and I know no harm at all will come to them. People you can kill, animals - big no no. (Should I clarify that I mean you can kill people IN BOOKS...?)


As always, so nice to hear from you!
