First Line

I am deep in the land of final revisions, and have no time to even think of a blog post. I’m too busy guiding my characters down the treacherous Colombia River. 

Instead, I thought it would be fun for everyone to post the first line of one of their favorite books. (Please include book title and author).

Oh, and in other news—I’ve finally figured out how to do links.  I’m going to be filling up boxes with all kinds of cool things.  🙂

  1. It’s a cheat because the one statement is right above the first line as a thought of the girl.

    “You better not tell nobody but God. It’d kill your mammy.” Dear God, I am fourteen years old.

    The Color Purple, Alice Walker

  2. “I was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day in January of 1960; and then again, as a teenage boy in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan, in August of 1974.”

    Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
