Rose City Reader hosts this meme every week for those of us too tired by Friday night to write a lengthy review!
In honour of one of my dear colleagues who has left us for new and exciting opportunities, this weekend I will read 'Young Hearts Crying' by Richard Yates.

Freda's Voice hosts The Friday 56 meme.
Friday 56 goes with Book Beginnings like cheese and crackers, ice-cream and milo or tequila and lime!
Simply go to page 56 of the book you are reading and give us a taster.
