The Friday 56, The Saga of Beowulf

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Okay, this week the closest book to me does happen to be the one I'm reading. So my sentence comes from The Saga of Beowulf by R. Scot Johns.

Well protected was this valley, encircled on all sides, and none could here approach without being quickly sighted by the Danish Guard, whose post was in the topmost tower of the Golden Hall, from which vantage all the lands around could easily be seen.

It isn't a very exciting sentence considering that a lot of the book so far has been about people being hacked, hewn, and torn apart. But what can you do?
