Book Beginnings and Friday 56 – 11/01/13

Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda’s Voice.    I noticed these memes and thought it would be interesting to do both.  Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week.  This is the book I’m currently reading.

The Giver by Lois Lowry

The Giver

Book Beginnings:

It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning to be frightened.  No.  Wrong word, Jonas thought.  Frightened meant that deep, sickening feeling of something terrible about to happen.  Frightened was the way he had felt a year ago when an unidentified aircraft had overflown the community twice.  He had seen it both times.

Friday 56:

The Assignments continued, and Jonas watched and listened, relieved now by the wonderful Assignment his best friend had been given.  But he was more and more apprehensive as his own approached.
