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 Some of Your Blood by Theodore Sturgeon: 

...but first a word:

   You know the way. You have the key. And it is your privilege.
(Not a lot of help there....


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 Some of Your Blood by Theodore Sturgeon:

Sometimes they saw each other at the grange or in town and talked, but everybody knew everybody and no one thought anything of it. And the way people like to talk, to do matchmaking and all, they still never thought anything about George and Anna.

Awesome, Theodore Sturgeon is one of those Sci-fi writers that I need to read more from. I haven't read this particular work but enjoyed "More Than Human" even if it was a tough read.Here's my review of it if interested: http://literaturefrenzy.blogspot.ca/2011/05/more-than-human-by-theodore-sturgeon.html

Glad to have found your blog through the meme.
