It was nearing midnight and the Prime Minister was sitting alone in his office, reading a long memo that was slipping through his brain without leaving the slightest trace of meaning behind. ~ Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K Rowling
Well I have to say I just picked up the book after finnishing another, so that I could post this Meme. And honestly it has pulled me in. I am curious what the Prime Minister is reading, although I imagine it might be about magic. But there is only one way I can be certain. And that is to keep reading.

  1. I had the opposite experience with the first in THBP. I wanted it to open with Harry! But I guess it's one of those novels that has such a good rep already that it doesn't have to be an absolutely AMAZING opener. Everyone will continue to read anyway! 🙂

    Thank you for participating in Friday Firsts! 🙂
