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 Five Red Herrings by Dorothy L Sayers:

If one lives in Galloway, one either fishes or paints. "Either" is perhaps misleading, for most of the painters are fishers also in their spare time.

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 Five Red Herrings by Dorothy L Sayers:

Mrs. Farren gave a gasp of terror that was almost a cry; but she recovered herself immediately.

I'm glad she regained her composure but I do wonder what she saw.

This is one of those 5QF questions that throws me! I have no idea what Miracle Whip is, so I will have to Google it.
