The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Find a quote from page 56.
Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't select their favorite, coolest, or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading. This is the book I'm reading right now---
Title: The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe
We were nuts about the mocha in the waiting room at Memorial Sloan-Kettering's outpatient care center. The coffee isn't so good, and the hot chocolate is worse. But if, as Mom and I discovered, you push the "mocha" button, you see how two not-very-good things can come together to make something quite delicious.Friday 56:
Mom loved Marjorie Morningstar. That much I knew. How much she was or was not Marorie Morningstar herself remained her secret.Comment: As the title implies Will's mother has cancer. They both love to read so they decide to start a book club of two. While they sit at her many appointments they decide to talk about the books they are reading. Marjorie Morningstar was his mother's favorite book when she was younger. Years ago I gave this book to my mother, even though I hadn't read it. She and I are both in book clubs in our separate towns. We often talk about the books we are reading and those we are discussing on our clubs. She liked this book a lot, though she told me, it isn't as much about the books as it is about the relationship between Will and his mother.
