Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...



Attention All Challengers! S0....life here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

Friday Memes

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


Here's mine
from The Unknown Weapon (Andrew Forrester), the first short novel found in Three Victorian Detective Novels edited by E. F. Bleiler:
I am about to set out here one of the most remarkable cases which have come under my actual observation.

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 Unknown Weapon (Andrew Forrester), the first short novel found in Three Victorian Detective Novels edited by E. F. Bleiler:

Had he been killed without any knowledge of who he was?

Haven't heard of this one before. The BB and 56 have me curious.

I really like the Friday56. There seems to be an identity crisis of some kind. Really interesting. Like the beginning too.

That beginning grabs us and shows us that exciting times lie ahead.

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.
