THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

YOUR BOOK BEGINNING




MY BOOK BEGINNING



Kevin Bartholomew was writing medication orders in the residents' room, a den of tattered couches and rickety folding chairs cluttered with the detritus of take-out food delivered from local ethnic restaurants. 

Sensing Light by Mark A. Jacobson. This is the story of three doctors working in San Francisco at the beginning of the AIDS epidemic. The author drew on his own experience as an intern in 1981 at San Francisco General Hospital, shortly after the CDC first reported a mysterious disease killing gay men.

Couldn't find the linky, so here's mine (PS with a giveaway!): http://guiltlessreading.blogspot.ca/2016/07/friday56-bookbeginnings-strange.html

Medical conspiracies always seem to get to me. SInce this largely drawn from truth, I'm sure it's an interesting read!

This isn't a typical book for me but I love the imagery in the beginning. It sounds like an eye opening read.

Beautiful title and cover. Hope the book lives up to that! Happy weekend!

I like the title. I've not had the chance to try many "ethnic" restaurants. The ones I've tried have been good.
