In all my reading this week, there wasn’t one sentence that seemed worthy of being named “quote of the week.” So I thought it would be fun to do another game. This one is similar to a quote game we played earlier in the month.
These are the rules: Grab the book nearest you right now. Post the first sentence of the story, along with the book’s title and author, as a comment. Remember to use the closest book.
My husband and I used to play this game at Barnes and Noble. We would randomly pull books from the shelves and see who could find the best first line, which is, of course, a true indicator of a book’s worth.
Here’s my submission:
“Keith, the boy in the rumpled shorts and shirt, did not know he was being watched as he entered Room 215 of the Mountain View Inn.” ~ “The Mouse and the Motorcycle,” by Beverly Cleary
