Welcome once again to #FirstLineFriday, a little quiz designed to help us appreciate some of the best opening lines in literary history. From the classics of long ago to the latest best-sellers, everything is fair game.
As always, the rules are simple:
- Be one of the first five people to email me before the game ends at 4:00pm, with the title and authorof the correct book.
- Do not reply here on the blog.Email only: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Honor System applies. No Googling, please.
- Submissions end at 4:00 P.M. EST, or when I receive 5 correct answers, whichever comes first.
- Winners who live in the U.S.may request a free download of any one of my books for themselves, or for someone of their choice. OR, if they’ve read all of the offered books, they may request a free download of my next publication.
- Winners who live elsewhere may request a PDF file of the same books, since, sadly, Amazon won’t let me gift you from the site.
And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for! (Hopefully, this one will be a bit easier for many of you.) Here’s today’s opening line:
“This is my favorite book in all the world, though I have never read it.”
Remember, email answers only, please. Thanks! And now off I go to await your guesses.
