A little bit about books, a little bit about life.

Booking thru Thursdays
What are your favourite first sentences from books? Is there a book that you liked specially because of its first sentence? Or a book, perhaps that you didn’t like but still remember simply because of the first line?
I have a secret... I can't think of any!! Normally, I would rush to my bookshelf and pull out a couple of great books, and make like I knew these great beginning lines all along, but (second secret) I'm at work (no worries about getting caught, I'm the boss), and there is no bookshelf full of books waiting for me here. Just off the top of my head, it would have to be the classic "It was a dark and stormy night..."
Hey...what can I say? This is all new to me...forgive me. I'll catch on... I'm usually a fast learner.
