Every Friday Rose City Reader hosts Book Beginnings on Fridays. What you do is share the opening line(s) of the book you are currently reading and briefly discuss what you think about the opening line or the book or whatever else inspires you. Make sure to share your entry with Rose City Reader and in my comments below.
Here's my book beginning:
"It was a dark and stormy night."
-A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle
Somehow I missed reading this in my childhood, but I guess it's never too late. It's an evocative opening, and a simple one. I'm curious to see where this night leads us.
