Four Fun Friday memes to join
Fridays are about sharing the first sentence(s) of a current book I'm reading and a snippet from page 56 or 56% on e-reader from the same book. Fun, right? And I'm joining the BBH (Blogger Hop) to answer this week's prompt. As always, everyone is welcome - hope to see you there and sharing first sentences.......
Today's Book is:
Solito by Javier Zamora
Published Sept 2022; 381 pages
First Sentence(s): "La Herradura, El Salvador, March 16, 1999 - Trip. My parents started using that word about a year ago --"one day, you'll take a trip to be with us. Like an adventure. Like the one Simba goes on before he comes home.""
Page 56: "In between mealtimes, I fill in the worksheets my teachers gave me. I want to keep learning so I'm smarter than the gringos. I do one worksheet a day so I have something for the other days, even though I finish them quickly. Once I'm done with homework, Grandpa takes his Mexico map out and makes me memorize the names of towns Don Dago told him we're supposed to pass on our way north. "In case you get lost, you'll know exactly where you are," he says."
Today's Question: Do you prefer to read in a quiet or noisy setting?
I prefer quiet, but really I can read anywhere. I'm able to turn on some brain filter than blocks out the TV and voices pretty completely.

Hope you'll join in one or all of these fun memes and take a minute to visit the other participants. I'm surprised how many times a first sentence can send me looking for a book.
