First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 11/8/19

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

First Lines

Is it possible that I'm a procrastinator?  When this idea worked its way into my mind, I scoffed.

Sometimes we KNOW God is calling us to do something, but we drag our heels.

 Q.  Can you stop reading before the end of a chapter? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)
A.  No, not usually!  Most of the time I MUST finish a chapter before putting my bookmark in place.  There are occasions when I'm interrupted and have to quit reading before the end of a chapter but I don't like it one bit! 


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

  1. Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from A Match for Emma by Pepper Basham.
    Here I'll share with you the first line from chapter 5 --
    "There was something about front porch swings."

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of bookish delights!

  2. I agree with that 56 wholeheartedly. Sounds like an interesting read!! Happy weekend!

  3. I'm the opposite. I don't care if I'm at the end of a chapter but it is a nice place to stop.

  4. Happy Friday! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Misleading Miss Verity by Carolyn Miller: I'm currently reading Once Upon a Christmas, a novella collection. I'll share a line from there:

    "Stretching her arm, Li slammed her hand on her phone and tapped to snooze the alarm."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. ๐Ÿ™‚❤๐Ÿ“–

  5. I so need this book. My to-do list has become 40 tasks all about one quarter done.

  6. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "The Strength of Their Love" by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    "Forrest Williams slammed his hand on the nightstand, trying to find his phone so he could shut off the racket the alarm was making."

  7. My first line is from The Pursuit of Home by Kristi Hunter

    Marlborough, England 1816
    Sometimes, despite time, distance, and a significant amount of ignoring it, the past never quite went away.

  8. Lol! I'm like you, Colletta, I find it challenging to stop reading mid-chapter. ;-) Perhaps we should start a support group. ;-)
    I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Here's my BBH Post

  9. Happy Saturday! Today I'm sharing the first line from Forged Through Fire: A Reconstructive Surgeon's Story of Survival, Faith, and Healing by Mark D. McDonough, MD: "I woke perspiring as an intense wall of heat rolled across the room."

  10. I usually have to try to stop on a chapter break as well.
