Now this is something random and fun.
Just open page 33 of the book you're reading currently and share the first line.
Please mention the name of the book.

Eg:

"I remember wondering if I could get a job in those parts."
-The Thirty-Nine Steps

Stefani Sloma (stefanisloma) My current read is an e-ARC on my Kindle (which has no pages), so this is from my next read: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

"'To where I live,' she says, then rushes on. 'It's just that with your accent, I figured you--'
'Were a London street urchin?'"

I know you said first line, but that made no sense if I didn't finish it! :)
