HAPPY NEW YEAR!
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.
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.
YOUR BOOK BEGINNING
MY BOOK BEGINNING
Stacked bags of rock salt loomed high in a dim, cavernous room, where the stale smell of diesel exhaust from hulking delivery trucks lingered long after they were parked for the day.
-- Where the Wind Dreams of Staying: Searching for Purpose and Place in the West by Eric Dieterle, published by OSU Press. This new memoir is as much a tribute to the inland West as the story of the man shaped by his western environment.
Sounds good! Thanks for sharing...ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
Definitely makes me want to know where it's going. :)ReplyDelete
Sounds very poetic for a memoir. Even the title is poetic. Hope you enjoy it.ReplyDelete
Whilst the genre of book doesn't really appeal to me personally and I think the title is a bit too long, the cover art is really evocative and the full premise is very alluring.
I can imagine that you will really enjoy this one!
Thanks for sharing and hosting and have a good 2017 :)
I like the title and the cover is beautiful. I know nothing about the author, but the book sounds very interesting. I'm looking forward to your review.ReplyDelete
I just pictured the scenery. Great opening!ReplyDelete
Sounds like the winter storm going on right now.ReplyDelete

I am not much into memoirs, but the cover and title are absolutely beautiful.ReplyDelete
