Friday 56, #56

It’s time for  Friday 56!  It’s a book meme hosted by Freda at Freda’s Voice. Be sure to visit her blog if you would like to participate.

From Freda’s Voice The Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader  (If you have to improvise, that’s okay.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post in the Linky at Friday 56. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple!

Here is my contribution :

And here is page 56

“Armed with this info about the male species, we should be able to build fulfilling relationships with them without making ourselves crazy trying to figure them out–yeah, should  be able to.”

The book discussed on this page is Secrets About Men Every Woman Should Know by Barbara De Angelis, and it was a cultural phenomena in the early 1990’s.

This book is like a prototype book blog or GoodReads. Books are sorted into different categories and are then discussed. I’m not sure the books all hold up (especially the book discussed above), but I still enjoy reading through it. Have you read this book? If so, what do you think of it?  Would you read this book? Let me know in the comments below, and be sure to leave a link to your Friday 56 too. Happy Reading.

The above are both screen shots of the book from my Kindle. I got this book free from GoodReads. When I finish it I will, of course, write a review of the book. I’m really excited to have this book because it is a book I would buy and read on my own. Would you read this book based on the excerpt here? Let me know in the comments below.

The title of the poem is Thousand Kisses Deep

Like last week and the week before, this book came to me via Page Habit/Quarterly Book Box. This is a book of Leonard Cohen’s poems, so I focused on the my favorite stanza of the poem. Are you a fan of Leonard Cohen both his music and poetry? Let me know in the comments below. Be sure to leave your Friday 56 link in the comments, too.

Like the book I used last week for The Friday 56, this book came in the Page Habit/ Quarterly Book Box. And, yes, I’ve not read it. But I’m very intrigued by this passage. What do y’all think? Would you read this book? Have you read this book and, if so, what did you think? Let me  know in the comments below. And be sure to leave a link to your Friday 56.

This is a bit gruesome, I’ll admit.

This came in a book box in November and I’ve not yet read it.  But in spite of this rather gross section, I am interested. Have you read it? What are your thoughts about it? Let me know in the comments below what you think about this book, and be sure to leave a link to your Friday 56, too.

This is my first Friday 56 in a couple of months and I’m looking forward to posting and visiting blogs every Friday. Happy Reading!

I put this book on my library’s recommend list where it has languished for almost a year. So, rather than wait, I found it in a used bookstore and bought it. I love the cover of this book. It’s so pretty.

I have such mixed feelings about this book. It’s creepy and scary and perfect to read during the month of October. But. It’s not perfect. I won’t say what it is that is so bothersome. And I will encourage everyone who loves a good vampire story to read this book!

But.
