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.

A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson
"Welcome. and congratulations. I am delighted that you could make it. Getting here wasn't easy, I know. In fact, I suspect it was a little tougher than you realize. To begin with, for you to be here now trillions of drifting atoms had somehow to assemble in an intricate and intriguingly obliging manner to create you."
Yes, many more than 1 first sentence, but a book this thick deserved multiple sentences, plus the first couple just don't make sense without context.

Great beginning!
I post more sentences of the book I'm reading also!
