The page 56 meme – having another go

It looks like the page 56, 5th sentence meme is still alive and well. 

I had a go last year when I was reading Pride and Prejudice and now this machine is back in business I’ve been having a look around other bloggers blog lists and found it popping up all over the place.
It seems to have found its way on to Facebook and theres one version you must see, click over to Stonehead’s blog and see his different take on it.  

Actually his blog is one of my must reads when he posts – life on a croft (small farm) in rural Scotland rearing specialised breeds of pigs can be tough. 
Have a look and see the fun time he had recently with the winter weather and how he coped in his own special way.
But back to the business in hand – the page 56, 5th sentence meme – this is how the usual method goes:

  • Pick up the nearest book to you – beside the bed or computer – wherever
  • Turn to page 56
  • Post the text of the 5th sentence
  • Then pass this on to who ever you like. 
  • But if you like you could blog and leave a comment so others can come over and see


For some reason I haven’t done a lot of reading this summer, haven’t been able to settle so found it easier to knit ‘cose I could pick it up and put it down at will without ‘losing my place’

However there is a book beside the bed at the moment that I’ve just started reading …

  Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child

I like a mystery/thriller now and again and this was on Dd’s shelf  (well not this version but a Readers Digest condensed version – but I’m sure most of the storyline will be there) when I slept over the other night so gave up my knitting for a look see. 

What with one thing and another I haven’t made much progress, I’ve read some of the Jack Reacher books before so its not a hard read,  I just don’t seem to be able to concentrate.


In the RD version page 56 is part of Chapter 4 and the plot is becoming even more interesting.

5th sentence is very short so I’m bending the rules and giving you 4th, 5th and 6th lol

‘Duration isn’t significant.  He doesn’t live at home.  And who is to say he’s missing?’

So there you make what you will of that – I won’t know till I read a bit further on

Hope to hear from you, it would be good if you played along

  1. There was the usual grenade training with the Mills and the Bakelite smoke grenades.(PS Thanks for the link, though I'm not sure why my version of the game/meme is cryptic.)
