book beginnings

"True Courage can throw you at first, because it's counterintuitive. In other words, it's the opposite of what you might expect. My best example? Getting into a pickup and backing up a trailer into the garage. No sweat, you say? What's the big deal about backing a trailer into a garage? It's no sweat until you try to pull it off. If you've never done it before, thirty seconds into it you're sweating like a fire hydrant because the pickup and trailer are twisted like a pretzel - and you're suddenly parked in the flowerbed with no clue how to get out."

I'm reading True Courage by Steve Farrar. He's made some really good points along the way. I posted the FIRST review Thursday but will be adding my thoughts as soon as I'm finish.

Wanna join in? How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you would like, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. The link-up will be at A Few More Pages every Friday and will be open for the entire week.

Thanks to Book Ponderings for getting me involved with this!
