First Line is my favorite weekly post! Booklovers can share the first line or two of the book you are currently reading, just finished or just randomly grab one off your shelf…💗
This week my Friday First Line is inspired by a new book subscription I just joined called Coffee and a Classic. This is my first month’s book.
In the set, I received a wonderful copy of the book, a wooden bookmark, a wood sliced ornament, some Dickens inspired Scentsy type melts, and a holiday blend of coffee.
A funny story about this book subscription, it came to me from Maine. While going through my box I was looking closely at the coffee, a type I hadn’t heard of before, Voyage Coffee Roasters. Ironically it was shipped from my home zip code here in Eugene, Oregon. Small world…
Here you go…
My father’s family name being Pirrip, and my Christian name Philip, infant tongue could make of both names nothing longer or more explicit than Pip. So, I called myself Pip, and came to be called Pip.
Title: Great Expectations
Author: Charles Dickens
Pub Date: 1860
Great Expectations begins when a boy named Pip encounters an escaped convict in a graveyard. The gripping story that emerges from there includes money from a mysterious benefactor, a bewitching and cold hearted girl, and the shut-in Miss Havisham, forever clothed in a tattered wedding gown. It’s no wonder that so many people consider Great Expectations to be one of Charles Dicken’s best works.
I’d love to hear your thoughts and read your First Line…Even if you don’t have time for much reading this holiday season, grab a book off your shelf and share a first line!
Happy Friday friends & Happy Reading this weekend!💗 I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and you’ve still found time for reading!
