These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.

|I gotta say, Magnus Bane is my favorite Downworlder|
from the Shadowhunter books.
"Still. If one could look this fabulous, one had an obligation to. One should wear everything, or one should wear nothing at all."
