First Lines

What is it about a book that attracts your attention?  Maybe it’s the title or the author.  Perhaps it’s the cover art.  What if all you had to base your decision upon was the book’s first line?  A well written first line can draw you in and entice you to read the next line, the next paragraph, and beyond.

Our latest book display gives you the chance to judge a book by its first line.  Some will be very familiar…others might interest you enough to take a chance and continue reading.  Visit First Lines in its new location on the first floor of the Drexel Library.
