The Friday 56, Inkspell

* 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 Inkspell by Cornelia Funke. I seem to be reading a lot of YA books lately. This is the sequel to Inkheart of course which I liked alright so I thought I would keep going. Meggie is kind of annoying me in this one so far though.

The sentence:

The honey did burn your mouth like red-hot coals, but the pain passed away - and if you bore it long enough, then afterward you could speak to fire, even with a mere human tongue.

Sounds cool. The speaking to fire part, not the burning like red-hot coals part. Still, I don't think I would jump into the story even if I had a chance. But I've never been very adventurous. That's why I like to read so much. You get all the adventure but get to stay safe at home with a nice cup of tea.
