Book Beginnings on Friday

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Schulz and Peanuts: A Biography by David Michaelis

"When Charles Schulz died, he left behind fifty years of clues about his life embedded in his cartoons."

Did you know there really was a Little Red-Haired Girl that Charles Schulz loved and never got? He really did use bits of his own life in illuminating Charlie Brown.

Hi!
Sounds like a good book. Did you know Charles Schulz was from a small town near me? Fairmount, Indian. Have a great day!

How interesting! I love biographies and autobiographies, so I am going to put this on my "to read" list.

I ordered this book for my library but I haven't read it. It sounds fascinating. Such a moving and funny comic strip. I wonder what other aspects made it into the story. Perhaps Schulz had to read War and Peace over his holiday break when he was in school. I'll have to pick this up some time to find out.

Here is my Book Beginning

That's a really sweet way to start a book. I hope that its good, I don't usually read biographies.
