First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday is a new bookish meme hosted by yours truly, Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along. 

  • Grab your current read.
  • Share the first line(s).
  • Include the title and author so that other FLF participants can add the book to their TBR Lists.
Cleaning Nabokov's House: A Novel

"I knew I could stay in this town when I found the blue enamel pot floating in the lake. The pot led me to the house, the house led me to the book, the book to the lawyer, the lawyer to the whorehouse, the whorehouse to science, and from science I joined the world."

~ Cleaning Nabokov's House: A Novel by Leslie Daniels


  1. hello girly, how have you been this week. i cannot think of my password to my shelfari for nothing. i do hate to start over, all my books are there oh, on a computer i gave my nephew also. anyway, how's the chick lit reading going?

  2. First lines make or break a book for me. This is a good one.

    I tagged you Marie.. here is my post

  3. Thanks for participating in FLF, Kavyen. Headed to check out yours now. First lines most certainly make or break a book. I ALWAYS read the first lines before purchasing or lending.

  4. Hey Sidne!

    It's been such a busy week. How was yours?

    It would be such a chore to start Shelfari all over. Maybe you could import from Goodreads or another site. Also try resetting the password through security questions.

    The chick lit reading quite started yet. But it's only the 6th of May! I have all month to dive in and plan to soon.

  5. Pass it along pls.

  6. Will do, Chickadee. I just finished CLEANING NABOKOV'S HOUSE this morning and will post the review next week.
