First Lines Friday

by Notorious Spinks on 04.27.2012

First Lines Friday is a new bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.

  • Grab your current read.
  • Share the first line(s).
  • Include the title and author so that other FLF participants can add the book to their TBR Lists.
