Friday Memes




Book Beginnings on Friday is a bookish meme now sponsored by Rose City Reader (who originally inspired the meme). 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 Gilion's place.

Here's mine from Murder for Christmas (aka Hercule Poirot's Christmas or A Holiday for Murder) by Agatha Christie:
Stephen pulled up the collar of his coat as he walked briskly along the platform.


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 Murder for Christmas (aka Hercule Poirot's Christmas or A Holiday for Murder) by Agatha Christie:

Stephen Farr came in with a trace of nervousness.  He disguised it by putting on a little extra swagger.

Sounds like an appropriate book for this time of year. I thought about reading some Christmas stories this month, but I can't pull myself away from my current series!

This sounds interesting. Especially the sentences from page 56. I am committed to reading more Christie next year. Maybe I will read this one ... close to Christmas.

Agatha Christie - what a great choice for a holiday read :-)

Yes, swaggering can definitely disguise nervousness. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.
