I like doing book memes, but I have also found that I get bored if I do the same ones too often. So, when Kat @ Here There Be Dragons mentioned two Friday Book memes that she combined, it seemed like such fun that I decided to play along on occasion. It also seems like a good way to play along with the memes without getting stuck in a rut.
Here’s how Kat described the memes she mashed-up:
“First Line Fridays” and is hosted over at Hoarding Books and is all about the first line of current read. A good companion meme is the Friday 56, hosted by Freda’s Voice where you turn to page 56 in what you’re reading a find a sentence that jumps out at you.
So, as Kat did in her post, I’m going to pull the first line and a line from the 56th page of one of my current reads, The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. (This is The Definitive Edition, printed in 1995.)
First line: “I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.”
Page 56: “Mother, Margot and I are once again the best of buddies. It’s actually a lot nicer that way.”
