Book Beginning: The 52 Lists Project


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 act of list making is such an essential part of our everyday lives, whether we jot down those lists on paper or create plans in our minds.

-- The 52 Lists Project: A Year of Weekly Journaling Inspiration by Moorea Seal, coincidentally published by Sasquatch Books.

The 52 List Project isn't a book to read, it is a journal to keep, with beautiful pictures and prompts to inspire 52 weeks of journal writing. I can't resist a list, so I just love this. And based on it's universal appeal with every woman who has seen it sitting on my desk, I've decided to make it my default Christmas gift this year.


  1. This has "Christmas gift" written all over it ;)

  2. It does look lovely. I will look around for it.

  3. The 52 Lists book sounds brilliant, I'm going to look out for it.

  4. I often use my calendar book as a journal.

  5. I have always wanted to journal and then I lose my inspiration about a week or two into it and the same with list making...this might be a very good thing for me to buy:) Great idea

  6. This sounds like something I need. Yet, I'm notorious for making lists and then not following through on any of them. :)
