Book Beginnings: June 8, 2012

This meme is hosted by Rose City Reader

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 at Rose City Reader every Friday.

I've had my eye on this one for a while and am really glad that I've started it (actually, I am about 2/3 of the way through as of today)

"I woke up at about 7:30am in a crack den, Apartment 1603 in Building Number 2301 of the Robert Taylor Homes."

Grabs your attention, doesn't it? This sociology graduate student hung out with Chicago's Black Kings for at least four years and this is his report.
