Booking Through Thursday: Page 56


http://btt2.wordpress.com/2011/08/11/national-book-week/

It’s National Book Week. The rules: Grab the closest book to you.
Go to page 56. Copy the 5th sentence as your status.
(We’ve done something similar to this before, but it’s always fun, so … why not?)

It's not National Book Week here in Sweden, but ... why not?
I just started on a new book and just got past page 56 anyway.

Strictly counting, I suppose the following might be the 6th and 7th rather than the 5th sentence, but that depends a bit on how strict you are about punctuation. Anyway I think this quote works better as a "teaser"...

'Good memory, sergeant,' Isabelle said to her. 'May I ask what happened to your teeth?'

Barbara Haver's first encounter with Isabelle Ardery, who is taking over as team leader replacing Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley. Elizabeth George: This Body of Death. (Please don't tell me what happens. I'm only on page 60 out of 728!)

A little beside the point, the BBC TV series based on Elizabeth George's books I gave up on after a few episodes because it got so out of sync with the novels.

  1. I love these books and have avoided the tv series, figured they'd clean Barbara up and try to get her and the Inspector together.

    That's brilliant! You'll have to tell us what did happen to them when you've finished it.
