Friday Memes

This week I am posting from Venetia by Georgette Heyer

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.

"A fox got in amongst the hens last night, and ravished our best layer," remarked Miss Lanyon.

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


"Perhaps you have friends already who laugh when you do," she said diffidently. "I haven't, and it's important, I think- more important than sympathy in affliction, which you might easily find in someone you positively disliked."

I disagree. I prefer empathy to someone who cannot be serious ever.

One of my good friends loves a good Georgette Heyer - they are her comfort read. Your quotes highlight why.

I'm not too sure what is meant by layer in the opening line. I like the cover. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
