Book Beginnings on Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Every Friday we share the first sentence (or so) of the book we’re currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
My Book Beginning:
Junkyard Dogs (Walt Longmire, Book 6) by Craig Johnson
From Love Among the Ruins – Robert Browning 1885Oh heart! Oh blood that freezes, blood that burns!Earth’s returnsFor whole centuries of folly, noise and sin!Shut them in,With their triumphs and their glories and the rest!Love is best.Chapter 1I tried to get a straight answer from the grandson and granddaughter-in-law as to why their grandfather had been tied with a hundred feet of nylon rope to the rear bumper of the 1968 Oldsmobile Toronado.
My Thoughts: I literally just started listening to this book on audio as I did this post. From the sounds of it the grandfather is either going to be dead or in really bad shape and I can’t imagine anyone doing this to a relative much less a grandparent. I lost both of my grandfathers before I could really appreciate them (one before my birth and the other before my 11th birthday) so this really bums me out.

My 56 (Also from Junkyard Dogs – about 56% via Audio version ):
Chapter 8When I got back to the office, I saw that Saizarbitoria’s vehicle was backed up to the service entrance. I’d put him in charge of collecting and then unloading Dewayne’s illegal 4-H project. “Hey Dewayne”, he looked up from behind the bars of his holding cell as I limped in with the last few plants. Vic closed the heavy door, took the plants from me, and disappeared.
My Thoughts: I’m going to guess that “Dewayne’s” 4-H project was consisted of marijuana plants….lol…and that he wasn’t expecting to get caught!
So what do you think? Have you had a chance to read or listen to the books or watch the TV series? Don't forget to linkup at Freda's Voice.
About Junkyard Dogs (Walt Longmire, Book 6) by Craig Johnson
A missing thumb and dead developers are only the beginning for Sheriff Walt Longmire.
It's a volatile new economy in Durant, Wyoming, where the owners of a multi-million dollar development of ranchettes want to get rid of the adjacent junk-yard. When a severed thumb is discovered in the yard, conflicts erupt, and Walt Longmire, his trusty companion Dog, life-long friend Henry Standing Bear, and deputies Santiago Saizarbitoria and Victoria Moretti find themselves in a small town that feels more and more like a high plains pressure cooker.

Have a great Friday!
