Book Beginnings on Friday

This meme is hosted by Katy of  A Few More Pages.

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.

This week, I am reading Government Girl by Stacy Parker Aab.

Government Girl: Young and Female in the White House

The door to the President's suite stood straight ahead and marked the end of my path.  Few staffers had business being inside the President's suite.  I did.

Knowing which White House (Clinton)Stacy worked for, I wondered if there was going to be some salacious tidbit. Nope, not really.  Although so far, the book is great. It's interesting to see how someone so young and essentially a Washington outsider operates and climbs the ladder.

What books are you reading?


  1. Great meme. I'm reading 'A Crowded Marriage' by Catherine Alliott - "By the time the suicide victim had been cleared from the Picadilly Line, and normal service had resumed, I was, inevitably and irrevocably, half an hour late." So far I'm enjoying it.
