Book Beginnings: September 16, 2011


This meme is hosted by Katy at A Few More Pages
How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. The link-up will be here at A Few More Pages every Friday.

Leverage caught my attention as soon as it came into my library at work last year, but somehow I didn't bring it home to read until this week. I guess there are just too many books out there that I want to read!

"The high bar's chalky bite threatens to rip the yellowed calluses right off my palms at the bottom of the swing, where the pull is heaviest."

From the first line I am all over this book. It's about gymnastics (one of the first sports I did and I love to watch it in the Olympics, which I will do next summer in London) and it's gonna' be gritty, I can just feel it.
