First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature hosted by Wandering Words: “What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?” The graphic above is also taken from Wandering Words.
- Pick a book off your shelf and open the first page
- Write down the first few lines, without giving away anything else about the book yet
- Reveal the book!

Reveal the book!
