Book Beginnings and Friday 56

Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader where one shares the opening lines of the book one is currently reading.

Here's mine:

That sunny September day was full of surprises.

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice in which one shares a couple of sentences from page 56 of any book.

Here's mine from a book, I have just finished:

What lust for life and happiness dogs our steps!
But if there were no death there would be no zest for living.


  1. There generally are a lot of surprises in a Nero Wolfe mystery! Here's my Friday Post.

    1. It's only my second Wolfe and must say the beginning is quite unexpected.

  2. Both of these books sound like they'd be enjoyable. Good post.
    My Book Beginnings/Friday 56 post features DAKOTA MOON.

    1. The Musha'irah one was real good and am enjoying Rex Stout's.
