Friday 56 (8)

Haven’t done this one in a while.

Today’s meme is the THE FRIDAY 56.  The only rules are to grab a book, any book, turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader,  find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it), post it, then add your URL to the Linky on the host site Freda’s Voice – easy peasy!

Friday 56

 

I’m featuring Page 56 of J.K. Rowling’s The Tales of Beedle the Bard.  I just got this book last week.  Haven’t had a chance to read it as yet but I can’t wait.  It looks so cute sitting on my shelf waiting to be read!

 

As familiar to many Hogwarts students as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty are to Muggle children, The Tales of Beedle the Bard is a collection of popular stories written for young wizards and witches.
Translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger, they include fascinating additional notes from Professor Albus Dumbledore, with intriguing glimpses into his life at Hogwarts, as well as illustrations from J.K. Rowling herself.
For wizarding and Muggle readers alike, this is a must-have edition, featuring fate-seeking witches, a hairy-hearted warlock and the tale of the three brothers who tried to cheat Death . . .

Why, then, the survival of this grisly tale?  I would argue that ‘The Warlock’s Hairy Heart’ has survived intact through the centuries because it speaks to the dark depths in all of us.  It addresses one of the greatest, least acknowledged, temptations of magic: the quest for invulnerability.

 

Have you read this one as yet?  What’s you 56 today?

Happy Friday!!!!

  1. I’ve only read Tales of Beetle the Bard once. I don’t know where the hardcopy is but I need to buy the Kindle version as I have the Kindle versions of the books.
    Hmmm…my 56 from A Beginner’s Guide to Rakes (Scandalous Brides #1) by Suzanne Enoch?
