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 The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies by Robert Rankin (a book whose title I could not resist:

"Once upon a time," said the big fat farmer, "it was all fields around here."
The traveller glanced all around and about. "It's still all fields," said he.
"And there you have it." The farmer grinned, exposing golden teeth. "Nothing ever changes in these parts. Nothing. Nor will it ever."
{I'm still waiting for it to live up to its title.}

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 is the mine from The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies by Robert Rankin:
Humpty Dumpty. Did he fall, or was he pushed, or was it that he jumped?

A place that never changes, is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Bev Hankins said...

Tea Norman...I don't know. So far it doesn't seem like a very good thing.

Luv the Humpty Dumpty line. Now I'm wondering was he pushed?
