Book At The Door

 

I’ve got a good book.

Would you like it?

Sharing a loved book with a friend is one of my favorite things to do. And despite the fact that I regularly write book reviews, I don’t love reading them. I want it all to be a fantastic surprise as it unfolds.

I don’t want to read the back of the book.

I want to read the first page, the first line.

I’ve got some books I love and I’d like to share. I’ll show you the first line of the book, and all you have to do is tell me the title in the comments. If you are right and your name is drawn out of the hat that book will show up (with the accompanying first sentence art) to your very own door.

So – I’ve got a book, would you like it?

 


Artists of all kinds (Yes, you photographers and you who says you can’t draw and you who just wants to practice hand lettering and you who is selling paintings online and…all of you!) if you are interested in providing a small piece of work that includes a first sentence I would love to hear from you!  

Authors, have I read your book and tagged it as a recommended read? Would you like to donate a hard copy? Let me know!

“My father is Sir Richard Woodville, Baron Rivers, an English nobleman, a landholder, and a supporter of the true Kings of England, the Lancastrian line.” (Author name has been smudged to preserve the fun!)
