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. You can check out others’ book beginnings here.
This week’s book beginning:
The story involves books. And World War II. And spying, so probably danger and intrigue. I am IN. So far, I’ve met Ava, an American librarian recruited to serve as a spy, and Helene, a French woman whose husband has been captured by the Nazis and who has been brought into the Resistance. I don’t yet know how or when their paths will intersect, but I can’t wait to find out!
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. See what others have to say on this topic and link up your own post here.
This week’s prompt:
Is there a hard-to-find first-edition that you would love to own? If so, why? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
I can’t say that there is. I don’t much anguish whether my books are first edition or not. My kids aren’t interested enough in the things I read to care if I have any first editions for them to inherit!
What about you? Any elusive first editions that you’re pursuing?
Share your book beginning or your answer to the prompt in a comment, and happy Friday!
