Friday Memes

This week I am posting from An Expert in Murder by Nicola Upson

Friday Book Beginnings is a weekly meme where we share the opening line of our current read. Book Beginnings is hosted by the Rose City Reader.

Had she been superstitious, Josephine Tey might have realised the odds were against her when she found that her train, the early-morning express from the Highlands, was running an hour and a half late.


Friday 56 hosted @ Freda's Voice is a weekly Meme where we share an interesting snippet from page 56 of our current book.

Reading the book later, as she sat at prompt corner, she felt no remorse over such small acts of theft, knowing herself to be a worthy recipient of the ideas contained in those pages. Better they should fall into her hands than be wasted on people with full pockets but empty minds, or left, forgotten, to gather dust.

Oooh, it sounds interesting. And to be honest, the thought of a nice book ending up with someone who doesn't read makes me want to steal it too! ;) I'm a new GFC follower! Hop on over if you have the time:

I like the nice piece of rationalization in the 56! This one sounds very tempting....

Great 56! I often think that type of stuff when dealing with some people too.

A train 90 minutes late? Hopefully she brought a book.

Here's my Book Beginnings.
