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.

Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison by Piper Kerman

"International baggage claim in the Brussels airport was large and airy, with multiple carousels circling endlessly. I scurried from one to another, desperately trying to find my black suitcase. Because it was stuffed with drug money, I was more concerned than one might normally be about lost luggage."

I needed to do more than 1 sentence on this one. You don't really understand what's going on until that third sentence. I am loving this book!

Here is my opener on Rose City Reader.
