Book Beginnings and Friday 56 – 11/08/13

Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda’s Voice.    I noticed these memes and thought it would be interesting to do both.  Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week.  This is the book I’m currently reading.

13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

13 Little Blue Envelopes (Little Blue Envelope, #1)

Book Beginnings:

As a rule, Ginny Blackstone tried to go unnoticed–something that was more or less impossible with thirty pounds (she’d weighed it) of purple- and green- backpack hanging from her back.  She didn’t want to think about all the people she’d bumped into while she’d been carrying it.  This thing was not made for wearing around New York City.  Well, anywhere, really… but especially the East Village of New York City on a balmy June afternoon.

Friday 56:

All she would have to do was pull the pile of bills from her pocket and drop them into any of these hats or guitar cases and she’d be done.  She could picture the scene–the astonished knife-throwers looking at the flutter of twenty-pound notes.  The thought was tempting, but something told her that this wasn’t right, either.  She gripped the money in her pocket, balled it tight, then got up and started walking.
