The First Line MI-5: Lisa Sez: Take five different books, and type in the first line of each book. You can pick a book you just read, a book you are reading, and a book you want to read. You can use fiction, non-fiction, poetry, textbooks, whatever. If you want to create your own similarities among the five books, you can. However, you can pick any random five books you want, whether you have read them or not. DO NOT post the name of the book, nor the author. Only list the first line.
Over the next week, visit the blog of each MI-5’er. Make yourself post a comment. It can be any comment, with one exception: DO NOT TRY TO GUESS THE BOOK OR THE AUTHOR. This is to the keep the “surprise” for those of us who like to guess. You may indicate that you’ve read the book, that based upon the first line you’d like (or not like) to read the book, or you canindicate that you know the book (just don’t name the book or author).
Next Thursday or Friday, each MI-5’er should add the title and the author to their original entry.
