I actually spent most of the weekn going through a non-fiction book, ChiRunning by Danny Dreyer. Decent book, although it spent a bit more time talking about t'ai chi than I really was hoping for. At least it was a library book.
The first sentence is:
Not long ago, I was running past a grade school.
Not the best start, but it did catch my interest a little bit.
Thursday at lunch time, I started Bundle of Trouble by Diana Orgain. I'm already 50 pages in and loving it. It's first sentence is:
The phone rang, interrupting the last seconds of the 49ers game.
Again, not the best opening sentence, but it does set up the opening scene, which grabbed my attention quite nicely.
