The Friday 56, The Stones of Summer

* 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 book this week is The Stones of Summer by Dow Mossman. I'm not sure about this book. It is going very slowly and the end seems very far away. There is a lot of imagery and sort of flowery language I just don't really get. I will probably finish it eventually but when I can't say.

The sentence:

They, his hogs and then him, only stopped here because they liked the acorns growing in the groves of the Lesser Cow River so well.

Oooh, I can see what you mean just by that sentence. It's very poorly written. The "so well" at the end is out of place grammatically and the beginning is confusing.
