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 English Music by Peter Ackroyd:

Yes, I have returned to the past. I have made that journey. "You can't go back," you said when I told you of my intention. "Those days are long gone." But, as I explained at the time, that is not necessarily true. One day is changed into another, yet nothing is lost.

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 English Music by Peter Ackroyd:

Yet perhaps that was the secret of their sudden access of happiness: to enter the night without fear and to find each other there.

I agree with Freda, the imagery is great. I really like the opening sentences, they make me want to know more.
