On Fridays I participate in BookBeginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and The Friday 56 - hosted by Freda’s Voice. Both involve sharing excerpts from a current book - the beginning and - you guessed it - page 56.
This week's book-
My name is Nathan Lucius. I sleep with the light on.
I buy old photographs of people I don't know. I give them names and arrange them into a family tree on my wall. This means I can have a new family whenever I want.
Here's my P56 (or 57, in this case)
The inertia is not just mine. It's like a thick wet blanket over everyone. I go to Eric's on my own and watch him draw the same old alpine scene while we discuss the heat. It's a silly conversation. Sometimes words are easier than silence.
This book looks a little hectic. But it is short, so I think I can read it quickly. It also looks like it may torment me a little, so I may have to put it down for a while - have you ever done that? Just can't carry on reading, and have to distract yourself with another book.
Tell me what you're reading, and I'll pay you a visit.
Happy weekend everyone.
