Chances are that you've already seen this, since most of us circle the same blogs. But in case you haven't Aaron Polson, from The Other Aaron, was tagged by Cate Gardner from The Poisoned Apple, and he tagged everyone. That's one way to get a chain letter rolling, lol. Though it's more like a treasure hunt. Anyway, the rules of the meme are:
From the biggest bookcase you have, pick out one book whose author’s last name starts with each letter of your last name. If you have no books by an author whose last name starts with a particular letter, go to the next letter. If you have two of the same letter in your last name, get two separate authors, not two books by the same author. Bonus: If you can, pick the first book you haven’t read off your shelf, unless you’re one of those people who’s read all the books you own.
- Post the first sentence of each book, along with the author and title. Feel free to skip prefaces and such, especially if they’re by a different writer.
H: "It was cold in the rough little hut." Linda Howard, All The Queen's Men. (Good book, good author.)
E: "Now before the Beginning, there was no Time, and all was Chaos and Darkness." David and Leigh Eddings, The Redemption of Althalus. (Never read it, should though...)
D: "How beautiful were the death dogs!" Wayland Drew, Willow (based on a screenplay by Bob Dolman and story by George Lucas). (Love the movie. Only "D" author on my shelf...)
G: "I woke three times in the dark predawn." Diana Gabaldon, Dragonfly in Amber. (This is the sequel to Outlander. I think I loaned Outlander out, pity, it's one of the best books I've ever read. This one's pretty good, too. Solid author.)
E: "There was death at its beginning as there would be death again at its end." Nicholas Evans, The Horse Whisperer. (Good book, much better than the movie.)
S: "A few miles south of Soledad, the Salinas River drops in close to the hillside bank and runs deep and green." John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men. (Great story, great author.)
So that's my name in books, lol. As Aaron said, "So I tag everyone. On the planet. Dooooo it!" Lol. Well, you heard (read?) the man. Get to it.
