The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. Join in every Friday, the rules are simple.
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
*Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
*Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.
‘Oh, to be sure,’ cried Emma, ‘it is always incomprehensible to a man that a woman should ever refuse an offer of marriage. A man always imagines a woman to be ready for any body to ask her.’
Emma is the only Jane Austen novel I haven’t read yet and I’ve been contemplating giving it a go very soon. Despite this, I feel like I know the story, having watched numerous adaptations.
Have you read Emma? Let me know what you thought and be sure to leave a link to your own Friday 56 post if you’ve participated this week.
