I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Storytime with Tonya and Friends

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* 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 Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

A movement caught her eye, and as she turned to follow it she saw the cardinal take its perch on the snow-covered branch of a maple. I sat, a single spot of vivid red, and sang.

I finished this book this morning and it was sitting in front of my keyboard. Vision in White by Nora Roberts, book one in the Bride Quartet

What a great sentence. I do love cardinals in winter.

Pretty passage, very vivid.

I love Nora Roberts - for some reason this reminded me of a song by Anne Murray - I think it was called Snowbird?
