Book Beginnings on Friday

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Instructions are pretty clear: just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

 This week's entry -Tea Obreht's The Tiger's Wife: A Novel

In my earliest memory, my grandfather is bald as a stone and he takes me to see the tigers.

This struck me on a personal level. My paternal grandfather passed years before I was born, and in the  photographs I have seen of him he would have also been as bald as a stone had we ever met and gone to see anything, let alone tigers.


  1. This book has been on my radar, but hasn't made it to my TBR shelf yet. Maybe I'll get a library copy.

    Happy reading!

  2. I keep seeing this one but like Rose City Reader I haven't put it on my TBR shelf yet.
