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 Dancing with Death by Joan Coggin:
"Am in great trouble, please come at once. Duds." Lady Lupin Hastings read the telegram through twice, with a puzzled expression on her pretty face, then she handed it back to her maid. "Staines," she said, "can you make head or tail of this?"

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 Dancing with Death by Joan Coggin:

"What do you think I am likely to do? Elope with Olivia?"

Eloping?? Why would that be off base I wonder...

The origin of dancing is to be sought in the natural tendency to employ gesture either to supplement or to replace speech.
