BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
Time is so elastic during coronatime. Days drag and weeks fly. Or is it the other way around? Who has abandoned their sourdough starter? What hobbies have you taken up instead? These five months are a blur of Tiger King, walking around my neighborhood, and looking out the window at my back yard while I type at this computer, usually for work, sometimes for this blog.
But now it is time for Book Beginnings on Fridays, an event that always stands out from the blur. Please share the first sentence (or so) of the book you want to highlight this week. Share a link to your post below and follow the links to find the other participants.
If you share on social media, please use the #bookbeginnings hashtag so we can find each other.
MY BOOK BEGINNING
The shovel has to meet certain requirements.
-- Bad Things Happen by Harry Dolan. I read this a few years back but had it out for an Instagram post and remembered how much I loved it and the other two books in his brilliant David Loogan trilogy.
I love the deconstructed simplicity of the title and cover. Every mystery could be called Bad Things Happen!
YOUR BOOK BEGINNING
THE FRIDAY 56
The Friday 56, hosted by Freda on her blog, Freda's Voice, is a fun tie-in with Book Beginnings. Share a two-sentence teaser from page 56 of your book, or 56% of the way through your audio or e-book. Add the link to your post on Freda's blog.
