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.

Liar's Poker from Michael Lewis

"I was a bond salesman, on Wall Street and in London. Working beside traders at Salomon Brothers put me, I believe, at the epicenter of one of those events that help to define an age."
This is a fascinating tale, and I'm intrigued so far. In fact, I'm wondering if this might inspire me to finally pick up Bonfire of the Vanities, but I doubt it (I own it.) On the one hand, this world of bond teading is completely foreign to me. On the other hand, I was inspired to read it after having a Sex and the City marathon, as it is so New York, and as I wasn't able to attend BEA, I was actually feeling a little nostalgic for NYC.
