I am fully participating in #FirstLineFriday this week, complete with my handy new graphic (that is not to be laughed at while I get the hang of designing graphics!), because what a fun way to get more involved in the various book-blogging communities, right? The idea is to open up the book closest to you and post the first line. This could be the first line of the entire book, the first line of the chapter you are on, etc. Change it up a bit if you like!
The book nearest to me right now is Napoleon: A Life.
I just bought it this morning (what did I tell you, Bookbub?!), so even though it is on my Kindle with 300+ other books, it is the one nearest me since it is the first one in the queue. There is no messing around for this author, Andrew Roberts, and he cuts right to the chase:
"Napoleon Bonaparte was the founder of modern France and is one of the great conquerors of history."
So, there you have it. Would you agree or disagree with this statement?
What is your First Line today? Leave a comment and let me know, then share your First Line with my fellow Bookdragons! If you are interested in participating, let Carrie know.
