Tator Tuesdays

Now that you've met our Tators, we want you to get to know us a bit. Every week we'll answer book/reading questions.

This week: What is the first line of the book you are currently reading?


"On the pleasant shore of the French Riviera, about half way between Marseilles and the Italian border, stands a large, proud, rose-colored hotel."


"A squat grey building of only thirty-four stories."


 “The Prisoner stood with his hands tied in front of him, tired, beaten, and filthy, but with a proud back befitting his royal Indian heritage.”


"I must have been a nightmare in high school English class."


"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."

This is from Anna Karenina. It is for CWAtC's book club selection for May. Since it's a long book, I am starting it early and reading a little bit at a time, about 70 pages per week.  I believe anyone can eat an elephant a little bit at a time. 

What is the first line in the book you're  currently reading?
