Book Beginning: The Adventures of Sally by P. G. Wodehouse


Oops! I completely forgot to post yesterday! I had friends coming to my house last evening, so I ran out of the office to prep some snacks and forgot all about my Book Beginnings hosting obligations. Sorry!


Sally looked contentedly down the long table. She felt happy at last.

-- The Adventures of Sally by P. G. Wodehouse.

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.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, 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.


From all over the beach dogs of every size, breed, and colour were racing to the scene: and while some of these merely remained in the ringside seats and barked, a considerable proportion immediately started fighting one another on general principles, well content to be in action without bothering about first causes. The terrier had got the poodle by the left hind-leg and was restating his war-aims.

Hi Gilion,

Sometimes life just insists on getting in the way of a good book and blog post - How dare it! :)

You more than made up for it with your choice of book though. You just can't beat a good bit of Wodehouse, they will never go out of fashion!

The cover image of 'The Adventures Of Sally' which you shared is amazing, but when I checked it out in a bit more detail, I came across this fantastic suite of cover art for the Wodehouse collection. It made my evening …

Thanks for sharing and have a slightly more relaxing weekend :)

I haven't read this Wodehouse work. Hope you are enjoying it.

I love Wodehouse but I've only read Jeeves and Wooster books thus far. I'm joining your meme with the opening lines from "The Prodigal Tongue: The Love-Hate Relationship between American and British English" by Lynne Murphy.

This sounds like a fun one that I don't want to miss out on:)

My Friday 56 from The Experiment

I like the snippets better than the cover, that's for sure. Happy weekend!
