You had me at hello.

With Summer in full swing (I prefer to say it this way, rather than, summer is almost over), I've been thoroughly enjoying trips to my local library in search of some great reads. I actually hadn't been to the library in probably close to 10 years, and I'm loving how the hours just slip by when I'm there. I always select books by opening to a random page, and just reading, in anticipation of my attention being taken hostage. With that thought, here's a helpful list of the 100 Best Opening Lines from Books. Check out the slide show... its fun to read the openers along with viewing the book cover art.

When you're done here, be sure to visit the 100 Best Closing Lines from Books.
