Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you’re reading.
Here is my opening sentence this week or my opening sentence + one more. It is from Hal Spacejock by Simon Hayes:
“Hal Spacejock was hunched over the Black Gull’s flight console studying the small chessboard balanced amongst the toggle switches, warning lights and status display. Recently he’d read an article promoting the ancient game, claiming it would sharpen his mind, improve his memory and increase his attraction to the opposite sex.”
I am 40 pages into this and so far it is light, fun and funny. It is also a free ebook at Barnes and Noble.
