Friday Memes (on Saturday)

I'm running way behind on my blogging....It's been a crazy week at work and then what with the heat, I've not felt like doing much of anything when I get home. So here's what I would have put up yesterday....

Book Beginni
ngs 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 The Prop by Pete Hautman:

"Jackpot went off again last night, Peeky. Seventeen grand."

The Friday 56 is a bookish meme sponsored by Freda's Voice. It is really easy to participate.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.

*Find any sentence that grabs you.

*Post it.

*Link up at Freda's site.

Here's mine from The Prop by Pete Hautman:

I come to sitting upright on the sofa in the lounge with someone holding a cool wet towel to my temple.

Sounds refreshing in this heat. But maybe they have a headache? Thanks for participating!

Sounds like an interesting book. I could use a cool wet towel about now with these high temps.

I'll be anxiously awaiting a review on this book, it sounds good.
