FRIDAY FIRSTLINERS

Friday First Liners are found in the first line of a book you are currently reading or are about to start on a Friday. According to the meme’s originator, The Purple Booker, readers are to copy the first line or two of a book and supply the title and the author for those of us to add to our never-ending list of TBRs.

I was looking at my copy of Darien Gee’s Friendship Bread, which was the first selection for our Third Tuesday book club, ten years ago next week, and I am going to copy the beginning of a good book and a great book club.

Chapter One

“I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT.

Julia Evarts looks up from the paper in her hand and studies the gallon-size Zip-lock bag. Inside is a substance that reminds her of drying wall compound, except it’s much pastier and filled with air bubbles. It would have gone straight into the trash had Gracie not been standing beside her, eyes wide with curiosity.”

Not only was this a wonderful book to start a book club with, but the author, Gee, was available for a Skype session as we ate our friendship bread (made from a recipe given in the book) and asked her about writing books . The meeting ended with each of us taking home a “starter” in a plastic tub. And, no, I no longer have a starter in my fridge, but I am seriously thinking of starting up again. LOL

HERE’S TO FRIENDSHIPS AND BOOK CLUBS!
