The Friday 56, The Hunger Games

* 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.

Almost forgot my Friday 56! The closest book to me right now is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Children fighting to the death on live TV. Sounds grim. And it is grim but it is also very interesting. And it reads very quickly. I'm already sure I'll be reading the next book.

The sentence:

Haymitch hasn't paid much attention to his platter, but he's knocking back a glass of red juice that he keeps thinning with a clear liquid from a bottle.

Three guesses as to what's in the bottle. I can't really blame him for getting drunk. Things are kind of bleak.

"Children fighting to the death on live TV."
Sounds like Battle Royale
