Hosted by Storytime with Tonya, this meme helps us feature a book close by.

Here’s how it works:

* 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 this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.


The book I discovered, right there next to my elbow (almost!), was this one that had recently graduated from the primary TBR shelves to the ones that will be up soon!

I’ve had The Tall Pine Polka, by Lorna Landvik, for more than three years.  I know that I had it at my former home…and I moved three years ago!

She dipped a corner of tissue into her coffee and with it rubbed the jelly off what was to become a sweater cuff.  “Now, do you mind telling me what’s going on?” p. 56.

This one was practically growing wings, hoping to fly out here, and now that it has my attention, who knows?

On the back flap:  In the small town of Tall Pine, Minnesota, at the Cup O’Delight Care, the townsfolk gather for what they call the Tall Pine Polka, an event in which heavenly coffee, good food, and that feeling of being alive among friends inspires  both body and soul to dance...

Later on, we read that when Hollywood rolls into town, friendships are put to the test.

Stop on by, curl up, and share some tidbits of your own!
