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 in the Rue Dumas by M. L. Longworth:
The friendship between Yann Falquerho and Thierry Marchive had surprised everyone at the university.


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 in the Rue Dumas by M. L. Longworth:
All we did was break in...that's nothing compared to murder.

I had to go look it up immediately since it takes place on a street named after me. :) It sounds like a great book and it's the first of a series -- I am going to track down a copy.

Thanks for posting in Book Beginnings. Have a happy New Year and I hope you play along again in 2013!

Thanks for dropping by my blog. I think the excuse makers on page 56 sound like high school kids...masters of excuse making.
