First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Grab your current read(s).
  • Share the first line(s).
  • Include the title and author.

"Summertime and the readin' is easy. If not fun. At least it is for those of us vacation-bound souls who believe we need a well-deserved break from so-called 'serious' reading."
~ 25 Great Beach Reads, The Writer June 2012 issue

"Let's start with the much happier side. Here's my personal list of reasons for wanting to buy—or at least bid on—a proposed book."
~ Why An Editor Says 'Yes' or 'No' to a Book, The Writer June 2012 issue

"Take a quick glance at your writing workspace. Does your desk bear the telltale signs of a creative mind at work? Are there sticky notes scattered like yellow constellations? Or yesterday's coffee mug casting a lonely shadow near that menacing mountain of papers in your inbox you've been meaning to file for—um, months now?"
