Friday Memes

Book Beginnings on Friday is a bookish meme now sponsored by Rose City Reader (who originally inspired the meme). 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 Gilion's place.

Here's mine
from A Sprig of Sea Lavender by J. R. L. Anderson:

That there should be a surviving railway station at the little Suffolk town of Sudbury in these days of axed branch lines seems improbable; that it should still actually have trains seems next to unbelievable. Privately, Keith Tomlinson had doubted the accuracy of his aunt's information.

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 A Sprig of Sea Lavender by J. R. L. Anderson:

Could he justify a search of the whole line? That would be ridiculous.

Intriguing! the first lines get me wondering about "his aunt's information" and the 56 line ... what the heck is this search about! it 's gotta be a good read!

Great beginning. It makes me want to go find the book immediately.

Off right now to do so . . .
