Book Beginning: Alice in Bed by Judith Hooper


Coming back from a meeting yesterday, I got stuck in traffic, so didn't get back to my office in time to post last evening.

Thanks for giving me your links in comments.


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.

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.



The Streets of Boston and Cambridge are running through my head again, and it is as effortless as dreaming.

-- Alice in Bed by Judith Hooper. Alice James was the sister of novelist Henry James and philosopher William James. Hoper's historical novel tells the story of Alice's life, mostly through letters with her famous brothers, because Alice has taken to bed with a mysterious illness.

Alice in Bed is getting a lot of buzz. It's perfect for a rainy fall weekend!

No worries! :) I hope you get out of the traffic jam soon, I HATE them :( Nothing to do, no toilet, no food (unless you're prepared), you know? To be fair, it's a beautiful picture :D Makes you think of everything Autumn and Halloweenie, he he.

Hi Gilion,

I hope that by the time I catch up with this post on UK time, that you will be home safe and sound.

That you even bothered to think about the post, is great in itself, unless of course, you really were THAT stuck and had nothing better to do!

I will try and check back later on Friday, but here is my link for now ..

'All Fall Down' is a World War ll saga.

Take Care :)

Looks like peridots surrounding your pumpkin, so sweet! Sorry about traffic, I am using shared wi/fi right now and find it very annoying. Remember back when we thought just having a connection was great? Here's my link
