"Long before I was ushering hip-hop stars like Jay-Z, Missy Elliott, the Notorious B.I.G., and Mary J. Blige into the Tunnell, or surveying the undulating crowd of club kids from the balcony of Limelight, I was just a provincial boy from the little Canadian town of Cornwall, Ontario."

This book was such a wild ride. I can't even imagine, and to be in New York in that time period, getting all the big-name rappers before they were big. Wow. What a thing to witness.

Happy Reading!


  1. My first line is from Silent Shadows by Natalie Walters:

    Pecca Gallegos never thought she’d be turning down a marriage proposal—much less four of them.

  5. Happy Friday! I'm sharing from The Story Peddler by Lindsay A. Franklin today. Here is the first line from chapter 3:

  7. First line from the book I was reading all last week (Those Who Love, A Biographical Novel of Abigail and John Adams by Irving Stone: "She sat in the center of the bed she shared with her older sister Mary, slim legs tucked beneath her, enjoying the early October sunlight as her hand moved across the letter paper."
