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 Nine Man's Murder by Eric Keith:
The railroad station was deserted. Not a soul in sight. Bryan West had arrived before the others, it seemed.


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 Nine Man's Murder by Eric Keith:

"There are supernatural forces all around us," Hatter explained, "whose role is to punish offenders."

Hi! Thanks for the visit to my blog!

Wish the 'Friday 56' quote were true in real life!

Deserted train stations and supernatural forces, this sounds like one I would like.
Thanks for sharing.

Supernatural forces that punish...that sounds slightly scary! But the beginning is really good at setting the tone and scene! Hop on over to my Friday Post if you have the time! Hope you have a great weekend!
