Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.  *Taken directly from Rose City Reader's Blog Page.

My Book Beginnings is taken from SHE LIES IN WAIT by Gytha Lodge:

 
"She made her skittering sliding way down the riverbank.  Her trainers hit the flat ground at the lip of the water, and she wobbled but recovered."

Book Blogger Hop - 11/30 - 12/6


Question of the Week:

If you could travel back in time to purchase the first printing of a specific novel, what book would that be? (submitted by Billy@ Coffee Addicted Writer)

My Answer: 

I am going to go with SHADOW OF THE WIND by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

It is the first book that always comes to mind when someone asks for a recommendation.
