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 Greenwell Mystery by E. C. R. Lorac:

"Good morning, Macdonald," said the Assistant Commissioner, looking up from his desk. "You will be interested to know that I've got another job for you."

I'm betting it has something to do with Greenwell. Wonder what the job is. [Actually I know, because I've read further than the beginning...but I'm not telling.]


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 The Greenwell Mystery by E. C. R. Lorac:

From what you have told me of Campbell, he wouldn't have been an easy customer to tackle, and a scrap in a closed car with a fellow who can play rugger and use his fists would be a good bit of a gamble.
