From The Book Lover by Maryanne McFadden
"...share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires...."


"She slipped out of bed while her husband slept, careful not to wake him. She'd hidden the letter in a stack of coupons and circulars in the basket on the counter, where she knew David would never look." 
---From The Book Lover by Maryann McFadden

My initial impression was curiosity about this marriage because of the wife's sneaky behavior. This is not a novel about marriage, but about the book world. I am reading slowly so that I can thoroughly enjoy this story of books and two "bookie" women.


*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
" She got up and went to the bathroom, her legs trembling so badly that her feet danced on the cold tile floor as she sat...."
