BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
What are your book plans for this weekend? My weekend is filled with grandkids, so I do not think I’ll get much reading in. But I hope to snatch a few pages here and there.
Please share the opening sentence (or so) of the book you are reading – or just a book that caught your fancy – here on Book Beginnings on Fridays.
MY BOOK BEGINNING
Gerald Middleton was a man of mildly but persistently depressive temperament. Such men are not at their best at breakfast, nor is the week before Christmas their happiest time.
– Anglo-Saxon Attitudes by Angus Wilson, a darkly comic satire of academia and society.

THE FRIDAY 56
Freda at Freda’s Voice hosts another teaser event on Fridays. Participants share a two-sentence teaser from page 56 of the book they are reading – or from 56% of the way through the audiobook or ebook. Please visit Freda’s Voice for details and to leave a link to your post.
MY FRIDAY 56
From Anglo-Saxon Attitudes:
There was no want of artificial flowers in the Corner House entrance hall. An enormous cardboard turkey and an enormous cardboard goose, owing their inspiration to somewhat vulgarized memories of Walt Disney, held between them the message MERRY XMAS made entirely of white and pink satin roses.
