Friday Memes

Book Beginnings on Friday is a bookish meme sponsored by Katy at A Few More Pages. Here's what you do: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments section. Include the title and author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you are so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line and if you did or did not like that sentence. Link up each week at Katy's place.


Here's mine
from Nothing Can Rescue Me by Elizabeth Daly:

The plump little man leaned over Gamadge's shoulder and squeaked in his ear: "Who am I?"

Not sure I'd want someone squeaking in my ear....but Gamadge doesn't seem too put out about the surprise.


The Friday 56 is a bookish meme sponsored by Freda's Voice. It is really easy to participate. Just grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56. Find a sentence that grabs you and post it.
Here's mine from Nothing Can Rescue Me by Elizabeth Daly:

"It wasn't a joke, you know, although the perpetrator certainly meant to amuse him- or herself as well as to frighten the victim."

I like this beginning! I've heard of Elizabeth Daly, but haven't read anything of hers.

My first try at a comment was hilarious, this one, not so much. The moment is gone.... damn captcha...
Anyways sounds mysterious even though I laughed the first time around reading it.

I've never heard of this author but the book sounds intriguing.

Ha! who is that man squeaking away! This sounds like quite a read, you hooked me :) I'm putting this in my TBR just to find out!

Thanks for visiting me. the perpetrator in your quote sounds a bit odd, but aren't they all???

I got acquainted with Gamadge last week in The Book of Crime. I like Daly.
