Friday Memes

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. This week I am posting from When Red is Black by Qiu Xiaolong.

Detective Yu Guangming of the Shangai Police Bureau stood alone, still reeling from the blow.

Friday 56 hosted @ Freda's Voice is a weekly Meme where we share an interesting snippet from page 56 of our current book. As page 56 is blank and 156 may have spoilers, I am posting from page 56 of my next week's read The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde

The news hit me squarely and hard. Revenge had been a prime emotion keeping me together over the past two weeks.
