FAVORITE FIRST LINES OF THE BOOKS ON MY BOOKSHELF 📖

When I'm feeling listless, a book list will always do me right. Thanks for the request, @blisssara !
  1. It is a wonder to me how God uses squiggles on paper to do his work in the hearts and minds of people.
    Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster
  2. In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines.
    Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans
  3. Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.
    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (cliché perhaps, but beloved nonetheless)

  5. 'That's true enough,' said Candide; 'but we must go and work in the garden.'
