Book Beginnings on Friday July 2nd. Or Close Enough

Yeah, I'm a little early again this week.  Still, I'm going to go ahead and do Book Beginnings on Friday.

I'm also jumping the gun because I just finished Run Afoul, which I talked about last week, today.  So technically, I'm between books at the moment.  However, I am going to start The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (part of the Narnia Reading Challenge) in a couple of hours.  So I'm going to use the first line from that today.

There once were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy.

Okay, so it's not especially catchy or brilliant or anything.  But this book holds such fonds memories for me that I can't help but smile when I read those words.

It's great opening! I'm thinking about joining the Narnia Challenge, but still haven't decided! Happy reading!

It does actually sound lyrical in its simplicity...

I like the sentence and I liked the story. I think everyone should read it. My Book Beginning is here.

Fond memories indeed. I loved this series as a kid.

Seems like such an ordinary start, but of course it isn't. I liked the movies more than the books though, LOL.

Mine's here.

I might be crazy, but I actually really like that opening sentence. It is short and to the point and sets the story up.
