Book Beginnings on Fridays is a weekly meme hosted by Gilion over at Rose City Reader. She recently took over this weekly meme. Basically, we post the opening sentence for whatever book we are reading and what we think about it. I’ve never really done anything like that, and only occasionally pay attention to the first sentence of book…usually only if it really appeals to me. Clicking the image above will take you to Gilion’s Book Beginning for today.
“All children, except one, grow up.“
As I’m sure you’ve seen, I added Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie to my sidebar as my current read. I actually didn’t end up starting it until this morning. But anyway, I’m sure this line appeals to any child reading this for the first time.
Knowing the Peter Pan story through the different movie versions out there is one thing, but I’m excited to read the original story to see the differences. Stay tuned for my review. 🙂
