While some of the books I review on my site are furnished by the publishers, authors, or publicists for the purpose of review all of my reviews are truthful, honest, and my sincere opinion.

It's the Friday 56

* 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.

Here's mine this week:


Page 56 Sentence 5: On one of his American Concert tours, the Polish pianist Ignace Paderewski received a visit from an ambitious young woman who told the famous musician that she, too, had enormous musical talent. After much prompting, she persuaded him to let her perform for him. Paderewski then sat through her bumbling, mediocre performance, trying to hide his boredom.

Ironically this passage seems to have little to do with the book when it's all by itself.....

What is this book really about? I play the piano and might be interested in reading it - is it any good?
