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.

"I was walking to school, lost in feeling sorry for myself—my dad was dead, my mom in rehab, my girlfriend missing—when I saw the Bat Lady for the first time."
  ~ Shelter: A Mickey Bolitar Novel by Harlan Coben


 "At first glance, e-learning seems like a bit of a beast."

~ E-learning 101 by Dr. Liz Hardy


"Lying on my bed—the same bed my husband and I slept in each night—I shut my eyes against the intrusin of everyday objects surrounding me: the silver-framed family photographs on the dresser, Paul's stained silk tie coiled on the chair waiting to be sent to the cleaners, and the still-unread morning newspapers."
 ~ Lip Service by M. J. Rose
