Book beginnings and Friday 56

Happy Friday everybody!

Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the one you are currently reading.

Book: Kissing Shakespeare by Pamela Mingle

Book Beginnings:
I was alone backstage.
Friday 56:
"Amazing. And which of Shakespeare's ladies is your mother most like?"
"Lady Macbeth," I blurt.
Steven laughed. "You mean she would dash your brains out to further her career?"
I only started the book last night but already the main character has been transported back in time to try to save Shakespeare from doing something rash and becoming a priest. Cute premise.
