The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted over at Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple and go something like this.
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
3. Find any sentence, (or a few, just don’t spoil it)
4. Post it.
5. Add the post url, not your blog url to the Linky.
6. Tweet it #Friday56 (not an official Freda’s Voice rule)
This week’s Friday 56 is being brought to you in conjunction with the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.
Today’s letter is:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green has been on my TBR for, it seems like, forever. I purchased the Barnes and Noble Exclusive Collector’s Edition way back when it first came out and it’s been sitting on my shelf collecting dust since. Every now and again I pull it down, dust it off and say, “I really need to read this.” Then back up on the shelf it goes. One day. One day.
Augustus glanced away from the screen ever so briefly, “You look nice,” he said. I was wearing this just-past-th-knees dress I’d had forever. “Girls think they’re only allowed to wear dresses on formal occasions, but I like a woman who says, you know, I’m going over to see a boy who is having a nervous breakdown, a boy whose connection to the sense of sight itself is tenuous, and gosh dang it, I am going to wear a dress for him.”

If you’re like me you may have already scrolled down to the end of this post to see how long it is and noticed this poll. And you may be wondering what the heck is up with the numbers. Well, I’m not going to give you a lot of information on that. All you really need to know for now is that I would love for you to choose a number from 1-10 and a color. The top five numbers and top three colors with the most votes win and you’ll get a glimpse inside something very near and dear to me.
