First Lines Friday, 56 and BBH ~ 1/17/20

https://hoardingbooksblog.wordpress.com/


Today's "First Lines" and "56" are from:



First Lines

"According to your estimations, she has eight minutes to figure out she can't open the door unless her employee uses the key he got in the last room."

 Page 56

"I'd like to pay for the funeral."

 Q.  Do you think that readers make better employees, as opposed to non-readers? Why or why not? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)

 A.  I'd like to think that reading makes a person better all around but I don't think reading would necessarily make a person a better employee.  For example, my husband hates to read and he is one of the best employees I've ever known.  I think it all depends on the individual.

  2. "I'd like to pay for the funeral.", is definitely and interesting line when you know nothing about the book. lol

    That was a great answer to the reading employee question.

  3. I read this a while ago and really thought it was good.

    My first line is from Collateral Damage by Lynette Eason:
    Forward Operating Base camp Charles. Afghanistan, September
    Sergeant First Class Asher James stared at Captain Phillip Newell, sure that he’d heard wrong.

  7. "I'd like to pay for the funeral." automatically makes me like the speaker. I hope you enjoy the book.

  9. Happy Friday!
    On my blog I'm sharing the first line from Lone Star Ranger by Renae Brumbaugh Green: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/01/17/first-line-friday-119/. I'm currently on chapter 6, so I'll share the first line from there.
    "Easy, now," Elizabeth whispered, working to keep fear from her voice.
    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with awesome reading time. ๐Ÿ™‚❤๐Ÿ“–

  10. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first lines from Guarded by Sara Davison on my blog today, so here’s a semi-random line from Chapter 8:

    “I don’t do relationship advice, so you, Nicole, and God are going to have to work this out amongst yourselves.”
