First Line Friday – 27 Jan 2017 – For the Record


Welcome to another edition of First Line Fridays.  This week we are welcoming Bree Herron from Bibliophile Reviews to our ever expanding group. 🤗  Hello Bree!

My first line this week is actually two lines, because they just need to stay together.  They’re from Regina Jennings’ latest release, For the Record:

Only a limited patch of Earth could claim the privilege of belonging to Texas.  Not that he despised the rest of the world for its misfortune, but there was a difference.

What’s your first line?  Share it below and then go and then visit my friends and share with them too!

  1. “Good evening,” said Lucy. But the Faun was so busy picking up its parcels that at first it did not reply. 🙂 This is from Chapter 2 of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” by C.S. Lewis. This year I’m reading books I have read in the past and have enjoyed. I don’t know how many times I’ve journeyed to Narnia.

    I love the covers of Regina’s books. They look so inviting. My first line is: “Journeys are a curious sort of thing.” From Embracing the Baobab, Missionary Reflections on Christian Community, by Jerry Ireland.

    My first line for the week comes from Tea and Sympathy by Carol Cox:

    “Kate Hanlon settled back into the pillows propped against the headboard of her bed and stared down at her lap. The tray resting on her knees contained a steaming mug of tea and a plate holding one slice of lightly buttered toast.”

    Happy reading and happy Friday!
