- Book Beginnings on Friday, hosted by Rose City Reader, where you share the first sentence or more of a current book you're reading, along with initial thoughts about the sentence and the book.
- The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice. Grab a book (in my case, the book I'm currently reading), turn to page 56 (or if you're using an e-reader, to 56%), find an interesting sentence or two (no spoilers!) and post them.
Beginning: "Robert Falcon Scott is dying, slowly succumbing to hypothermia in a tent pitched on the wasteslands of the Ross Ice Shelf, full of the weary knowledge that he was not the first explorer to reach the South Pole- only the first to have lost an entire expeditionary party doing so."
Page 56: "Once recognized as 'other', foreign bodies are attacked by battalions of immune cells."
What book are you reading now or are about to start?
