Greetings and salutations! I missed last Friday. I was working on a proofreading project that required my full attention. But I’m back this week, sharing more bookish goodness and fun!
Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted each week by Rose City Reader. It’s a chance to share the first sentence or so of the book you are reading this week.
This week’s read: All the Cowboys Ain’t Gone by John J. Jacobson. I’ll be sharing my thoughts about this book on the blog tour in a little while, so keep an eye out for that!
As the sun climbed into the dazzling South Texas sky, a young boy sat astride his mustang pony on a low bluff. Looking eastward in the early morning light, he could see a plume of white smoke.
The boy wore the chaps and spurs of a drover, though the last major cattle drive in Texas had been in 1885, three years ago. His blond hair, which he wore long in imitation of his father, hung out below his “sombrero,” as he liked to call his range hat. Slung over his shoulder were a small Comanche-style bow and quiver. His mother wouldn’t let him take his .22 caliber rifle out by himself until he turned twelve, three long months from now.
What do you think about this beginning?

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. It starts each Friday and runs through the following Thursday. Each week, there’s a new prompt featuring a book-related question. It’s designed to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, make new blogging friends, and gain followers.
Reading isn’t a fixed part of my routine in that I have a set time where I sit down and devote X amount of time to my book. It is part of every day, though. I can tuck my Kindle in my purse and read wherever I happen to have some down time – my lunch break at work, waiting to have the oil changed in my car, in the carpool line, wherever. And I do read a bit before bed just about every night (unless I’m so tired that I drop my Kindle on my face).
How about you? Do you have a reading routine?
