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 are the first few lines from Malcolm Sage Detective by Herbert Jenkins:

"Don't say 'yeh, say 'yes,' Dorothy dear."
"Yes, Dorothy de---"
Sir John Dene was interrupted in his apology by a napkin-ring whizzing past his ear.

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 Malcolm Sage Detective by Herbert Jenkins:

He made a blunder in not replacing the pass-book with something else. That was the last link in the chair.
