Book Beginnings on Friday: The Girls from Ames



Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme originally hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages but now hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. 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.

The Girls from Ames: A Story of Women and a Forty-Year Friendship by Jeffrey Zaslow

"At first they were just names to me.
Karla, Kelly, Mailyn, Jane, Jenny.
Karen, Cathy, Angela, Sally, Diana.
Sheila."

I rarely do more than one sentence for Book Beginnings, but this one just demanded it. We're starting off with our cast of characters which is good since there are so many of them!

I have this book on my bookshelf and can't wait to read it. Hope you are enjoying it!

This is the first time I'm participating in this meme - it looks like a good way to see what the book is about.

Have a good weekend!

I have an aunt who grew up in Ames, Iowa, so whenever I see this book I think to get it for her. Thanks for the reminder!
