Book Beginnings on Friday

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. 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.

Ultimate Fitness: The Quest for Truth about Exercise and Health by Gina Kolata

"My friend Cynthia, just back from a week in Italy, calls me, wanting to know if I can go for a walk."

The author gets interested in investigating exercise and fitness due to her own personal interest in it, so this is a very appropriate beginning.

Wonder what Cynthia wants to say on that walk? Will we learn about what happened in Italy or something else?

I love going for walks. I hope the author took Cynthia up on the offer!

Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings! :)
