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:
Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver
Genre: historical fiction
Published Oct 2022; 560 pages
First Sentence(s): "First, I got myself born. A decent crowd was on hand to watch, and they've always given me that much: the worst of the job was up to me, my mother being let's just say out of it."
Page 56: "....at school you heard talk about what kid was homeless or sleeping on the couch of some relative none too pleased of it. What pretty or ugly girls in seventh or eighth grade were kicked out for being knocked up. So on and so forth. Never did I dream I'd wake up one day as one of those kids."
Today's Question: How many books did you read in 2022?
154 books started, minus 7 DNF books makes a total of 147 books read - the most I've ever read in a single year in the 15 years I've been keeping track. And there were some really good books in there!

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.
