The Friday 56 - Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks



A weekly meme hosted by Storytime with Tonya and Friends


Rules:
* 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 this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week's Friday 56 comes from Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks:

'I,' said Berard weightily, 'don't consider them to be friends. I have not invited them to our house and I shall not be calling on them.'

That's a great 56! Bold and straight to the point.

Here’s my 56 offering.

Hi Dog-eared books,

I tried to send a private message, but unfortunately some of the message box is out of range, including the send button.

What I wrote to say was...
I've decided not to sink money into advertising my latest book, 'Who Killed Dave?' - a murder mystery with a decidedly Janet Evanovich bent. Rather give away 50 copies to bloggers who agree to review it. (no one's obliged to give favourable reviews).
I'm a previously published author with Hardie Grant, and a regular writer for ABC Organic Gardener, but decided to go it alone with this one and stand by my principles and make it a sustainable read.
Hence it's printed on recycled paper, uses vegetable inks, and is carbon offset. You can read more at www.togetherpress.com The offer of a free book is open to Australians only.

You might even like to let people know they can nab their own free copy. Not many more left!

Cheers

Linda
