Friday Focus: The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings #59


                            H-A-P-P-Y   H-A-L-L-O-W-E-E-N !!!!!!!!!!!

It's Friday . . . time to share excerpts from a current or upcoming read with:

  • Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current read, as well as initial thoughts about the sentence(s), impressions of the book, or anything else that the opening inspires.  
  • The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an ebook), find one or more interesting sentences (no spoilers), and post them.
Today I'm featuring my current read, a library book on which I've reached the maximum number of renewals:
Going Nowhere Fast

BeginningWe thought we had lost Bad Dog in Las Vegas.
He had followed us there from California, acting on a wild hunch, and come upon us as we were watching all the wrong numbers light up on the keno board at Bally's.
Page 56:  "Your father and I are not completely convinced he had anything to do with that dead man."
My thoughts:  This short novel is hilarious.  Recent retirees Joe and Dottie Loudermilk want nothing more than to spend their time traveling the country, free of interference from their five grown children.  In this case, their desire and their reality are diametrically opposed.
Which book are you reading now or about to start?
