It’s FRIDAY which means I get to share a great line once a week with your from a book I am reading. I found this to be an exciting and entertaining way to find new authors, books and bloggers. So I am opening up the book I have been reading this week, and going to the first chapter and finding the first line…

    Happy Friday! I have this book, and it’s on my list to read soon.
    My first line is from Joel C. Rosenberg’s new book Without Warning:
    “I had never been in the Oval Office before.
    But I’d always imagined my first time going differently.”

  2. Heather

    Fantastic first line! Happy Friday!

    P.S. I agree–First Line Fridays has been a great way to learn about new books and authors…so I can go and purchase new books. 🙂 And it has been so wonderful to meet other awesome book bloggers too. 🙂

    My first line is…
    Far-off screams filled the air and rattled six-year-old Jimmy Colton’s bones.
    (from Beyond the Silence by Tracie Peterson and Kimberly Woodhouse)
