Follow our fun first lines on Twitter and let a book hook you!
Readers often look at the first page to see whether they will like a book, and authors often try to start with something that hooks the reader. We thought that it would be fun to compile all the catchy, interesting, provocative and fun first lines we could find, and using the social media tool, Twitter, share them with fellow book lovers. So follow our fun firstlines and let a book hook you!
You don’t have to be a member of Twitter to read our first lines, simply browse our most recent tweets below or visit our page on Twitter - @first_lines. If you see a line you like, follow the link to find the title in our online catalogue.
Join Twitter to share your favourite first lines – it is really easy to set up a Twitter account – just ask us for a demonstration!
