It's Friday . . . time to share book excerpts with:
- Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current read, as well as initial thoughts about the sentence(s), impressions of the book, or anything else that the opening inspires.
- The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an ebook), find one or more interesting sentences (no spoilers), and post them.
"The flash projected the outline of the hanged man onto the wall"
Page 56, of the same book:
"The book hunter turned more pages"
The opening line certainly grabs the attention of the reader; page 56 not so much. But the back cover makes it sound very promising; a book detective who hunts down rare books for collectors finds himself involved with devil worship, the occult, and high adventure. It is billed as an intellectual thriller. And it's got assorted diagrams and line drawings!
