THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!
Sorry for the missing linky! I set up the post early because I am on vacation this week and apparently forgot the linky. I have had no luck trying to fix it on my phone. Please leave your link in a comment. Things will be back to normal next week!
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.
TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.
YOUR BOOK BEGINNING
MY BOOK BEGINNING
It was five in the morning. Inspector Burden had seen more dawns than most men, but he had never quite become jaundiced by them, especially summer dawns.
-- A New Lease of Death by Ruth Rendell. This is the second book in her mystery series featuring Inspector Wexford. It bothers me that the title has "of" in it instead of being A New Lease on Death, like a play on "a new lease on life."
