First Lines Friday, 56 and BBH ~ 11/15/19

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

First Lines

I sat alone at a corner table in the sterile, gray, middle-school lunchroom fiddling with the peas and carrots on my mustard-colored plastic lunch tray.

Have you been talking too much or speaking too soon?  Did you answer before really listening or fail to remain silent when now you wish you had zipped it?

 Q.  Do you think that overall work morale would be improved by having a "book lunch", sponsored by the company, at least once a month, or perhaps once a week? (Participation would be voluntary.) (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)
A.   This would be such a fun event!  I'd love it and definitely think it would boost morale :)


I'd love for you to visit my Etsy Shop:  Colletta's Kitchen Sink Shop !

  1. A book lunch! I love that idea!!!!!
    BTW: Did you ever mail my book? I have never gotten it if you did.

    1. I mailed them out on Monday. Sorry for the delay!

  2. Hadn't heard of this book before, but it sounds interesting! I can for sure relate to that page 56 snippet.

    I LOVE the idea of a book lunch, too! And I work in a library, so that's even better. xD

    Here's my First Line Friday post.

  3. Over on my blog, I am sharing 4-fabulous first lines from the just-released-today new book, The Highlanders (A Smitten Historical Romance Collection). Do stop by and check it out! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I don't like the idea of book lunch because as soon as something is mandatory it makes it awful. I want reading to be a choice. My Friday quotes

  5. I'm curious for more from your book this week! Happy weekend!

  6. This one looks interesting. Enjoy your current read!

  7. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first line from the prologue of One More River to Cross by Jane Kirkpatrick: "Mary Sullivan stood outside the circle of men, watched through the triangle of elbows as they nodded and commented about the markings the Paiute drew in the dirt."

  8. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Because of You” by Becky Wade:

    “Maddie Winslow met the man of her dreams the same day that her friend Olivia introduced Maddie to her new boyfriend. Which would have been splendid, except that the man of Maddie’s dreams was Olivia’s new boyfriend.”

  9. Keep in Shut sounds like an interesting read. I often keep my mouth shut when I probably should speak up, sadly. It's because I overthink things, mostly.

    I am not sure a work sponsored book break would be very popular in my office, unfortunately. I do read during my lunch break though. I often joke that it's a must if I want to keep my sanity. It helps calm my brain a bit and get it off my work for a much needed break.

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  10. This week on my blog I shared the first line from Heart of a Royal by Hannah Currie. It's also my current read so I'll share the first line from chapter 22 here: "The reception had been going on for hours--and no one seemed in any rush to end it." Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
