Join us in a little game several blogging friends and I are playing. Take a book you are ready to read and type in the first line or so. See if the first line “grabs” you. Enter the title of the book and the first line(s) in the reply box at the bottom of this blog.
Here is the first line from Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club:
” Tyler gets me a job as a waiter, after that Tyler’s pushing a gun in my mouth and saying, the first step to eternal life is you have to die.”
The book was donated to my Little Free Library in my yard, and now I need to read it (or at least part of it) to see if it is too rough for our neighbors. The first line is pretty stark.
