Best First Lines

Here’s a link to what one guy thinks are the 10 best first lines of novels. Some of them are pretty memorable (I completely agree, for example, that the first line from Catcher in the Rye should be included), but I think there were some left out. I am particularly fond of “Call me Jonah”….not from Moby Dick, but from Cat’s Cradle. Either way, this little list is a good refresher. And yes, I’ve read all the books on the list.

    What are books?

    They’re the things that I’ve got on the shelves upstairs. You know, the ones made of paper with words printed on them? You might have seen me holding one, doing what I like to call reading.
