I've done this tag before (although I can't remember if it was page 56 or some other random spot), but I've been tagged by the lovely Kate Diamond, so I'm doing it once more.
The rules are as follows: Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions.
Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the closest. Tag five other people to do the same.
Here's page 56 of the closest book on my desk.
"Well, if that's his only condition, then it's not half so bad. We can wait a year. It will be an awfully long year, but we can wait."
"Freddie," she gripped his hand, gratitude inundating her heard, "you are so good to me."
It's Sherry Thomas' historical romance debut Private Arrangements, and it's very, very good.
I tag Liza, Virginia (time to see if she's picked a book yet!), Angie, Barrie, and Sarakastic.
