The Friday 56, The Terror

* 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.

The closest book to me right now is The Terror by Dan Simmons. And judging by how far I've gotten it might be the closest to me for weeks to come. It's shaping up to be a good story but if you read it make sure you pay attention to the dates and locations at the beginning of each chapter because it jumps around a lot.

The sentence:

No one could have attended the lengthy service and heard the very lengthy sermon by Sir John without being deeply moved.

I'm sure that's what all the men gathered together to start a long, cold, dangerous sea journey wanted, a very lengthy sermon.

Deeply moved to mayhem?
