Book Beginnings on Friday: Lonesome Dove


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.

Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry

"When Augustus came out on the porch the blue pigs were eating a rattlesnake - not a very big one."

Kind of creepy. Blue pigs? Are they really blue? If the snake was bigger would they not be eating it? This line is intriguing.

I've never heard of "blue pigs." Really interesting.
