Book Beginnings on Friday

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 liked or did not like that sentence. Link-up each week at Katy's place.

Here's mine from How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu:

There is just enough space inside here for one person to live indefinitely, or at least that's what the operation manual says. User can survive inside the TM-31 Recreational Time Travel Device, in isolation, for an indefinite period of time.

That's good to know. I think. Not sure I'd want to live in isolation indefinitely myself.....

Doesn't sound too great to me, either...LOL. I have a "claustrophobic" tendency.

Guess I'd have to get a pretty strong recommendation before I'd start a book with that opening line. Ha!

Hmmmm... time travel. I could NOT live by myself all the time. I'd go nuts
