The Friday 56: #1

Each week, Freda’s Voice holds The Friday 56, a booking meme. This is our first week to join, and it looks like a lot of fun. Essentially, you just grab a book, turn to page 56, post a sentence or a few sentences, and then join the link-up.

I’ve decided I’m going to always use these for books that I’m reading.First up isΒ Twee: The Gentle Revolution in Music, Books, Television, Fashion, and Film by Marc Spitz.

“For all the genius of his music, (Buddy) Holly’s greatest contribution may have been his style. He was the first hip nerd, riding motorcycles and, sartorially, inventing ‘geek chic’ almost singlehandedly with his bow ties, slim suits, horn-rimmed glasses, neat hair, and toothy, eager smile.”

(Parentheses mine, added for clarification.)

    1. πŸ™‚ It’s definitely a niche-interest book, but as these things go, a fairly well-written one.

      Thanks for stopping by! 56 Friday is a lot of fun.

    1. It really is a good book so far–a bit clunky and dense at times, but so interesting.

      Thanks for hosting! Hope to keep participating in the coming weeks. πŸ™‚

    1. πŸ™‚ I picked it up from another blogger I follow. I liked this meme when it was floating around Facebook, and it was a really good idea to turn it into a blog link-up.
