The Friday 56, Dracula

* 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.

My book this week is Dracula by Bram Stoker. I think we all know what the book is about so I don't think I need to say much. I was slightly surprised by how quickly Harker realized he was in mortal danger and that Dracula was no ordinary man. It makes me wonder what he does with the knowledge for the next 400 pages. If it turns out like the movies I've seen it seems like he could have put that information to better use.

The sentence:

They came close to me and looked at me for some time and then whispered together.

Waking up in a strange place with people looking at you would be creepy even if your weren't in Castle Dracula.

I've tried to read this before but for some reason never finished. I should try again!
Here's my Friday 56!

So I'm guessing this is the first time through Dracula? It will be worth the 400-some pages....

Oh my ... why did they do it ? I've got this book as well, now I just need to get myself to start reading it.

Yes, this is my first time through Dracula. It has been sitting on my shelf forever. I don't know why I haven't picked up up until now. I'm liking it so far, although, oddly enough, Dracula isn't in it very much.
