August blogging challenge, day 10: Opening lines from five favorite books

Ooh, I love books! Here are my favorites.

1. “It wasn’t a very likely place for disappearances, at least at first glance.” Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon

2. “To the red country and part of the gray country of Oklahoma, the last rains came gently, and they did not cut the scarred earth.” The Grapes of Wrath, by John Steinbeck

3. “Scarlett O’Hara was not beautiful, but men seldom realized it when caught by her charm as the Tarleton twins were.” Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell

4. “Mr Sherlock Holmes, who was usually very late in the mornings, save upon those not infrequent occasions when he was up all night, was seated at the breakfast table.” The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

5. “The invitation came on a Saturday morning, just in time to wreck my weekend.” Asking for Trouble, by Elizabeth Young
