First Line Friday # 181

First Line Friday is a weekly feature and simple to do - grab the book nearest you and post the first line. Carrie hosts this over on her blog Reading is my Superpower.

At 1:40 a.m., Sunday, June 19, 1955, the last regularly schedule train of the Pacific Electric Railway left the Italianate, marble-floored Subway Terminal, 417 South Hill Street, Downtown Los Angeles.

Happy Reading!


  1. "This is a history of ancient Persia. It is unlike other histories of Persia (not that there have been many). This history uses genuine, indigenous, ancient Persian sources to tell a very different story from the one we might be familiar with, the one moulded around ancient Greek accounts."

    'Persians - The Age of the Great Kings' by Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones

    1. I think I have that one! It was a NetGalley I was sent but never read. I'm a bad, bad, man.

      "Greetings my friends. You are all interested in Plan 9 From Outer
      Space, for that is what you and I will be reading about for the rest[!]
      of this book. And as this book will prove, Plan 9 is more than a
      movie, it’s a way of life. A password. A secret handshake that
      signifies membership in very select group: smart folks with big
      hearts and evolved senses of humor. I’m speaking, of course,
      about weirdos." - Plan 9 from Outer Space

  2. Happy Saturday!
    Whew, it's been a crazy week. I'm just now able to get to FLF. 😥
    I'm just starting No Place Like Home by Jess Mastorakos.
    "I don't wanna go." It was a simple statement, yet I worked very hard to keep a petulant pout off my lips as I looked at my manager in the mirror's reflection.
    I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤️📚

    1. The whole last month of school was so chaotic, I am just now finally getting back to everyone. So glad the year is over!
