Friday Memes

It's been quite a while since I participated....I don't like it when life gets so busy that I stop joining in on the memes I enjoy....

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 is the first line from The Murder Stone by Charles Todd:

It always stood in the back garden--what my cousins called the Murder Stone.

{Looks like we'll learn what that Murder Stone is right away....}

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.

And here's my selection from page 56 of The Murder Stone by Charles Todd:

Do you think you could be so wrong about a man you've loved all your life? Do you really believe you could be such a poor judge of his character?
