Orconomics: A Satire | J. Zachary Pike

Welcome to #FirstLineFridays. Every Friday I will take a moment to put up the first line...or two... from a chapter of my current read. Let's go:

“As a general rule, signs are too subjective a topic for polite company. Where one man sees a sign of blessings to come, another sees bad tidings, and a third is puzzled by the animated discussion his companions are having about an oddly shaped piece of toast.“ - J. Zachary Pike, Orconomics

“The Saloon, like every other room in Arnside House, was large and lofty, and had been furnished, possibly some twenty years earlier, in what had then been the style of elegance.”
“Jack dreaded family gatherings.”

I gathered myself, my bare feet gripping the wooden floor, and my thigh muscles braced for the attack.

I got this in my cozy swap and am really enjoying it. This is my book to read when I volunteer at the hospital gift shop...and I‘m almost finished. I need to read more cozies. They are so easy and enjoyable.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Klou that book scared the crap out of me 😱😱😱 1mo
Klou @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I'm less than 100 pages from the end. It's not been as scary as I was expecting but maybe that's because I've seen the movie already. It has freaked me out in numerous places though. I wouldn't say I'm totally unaffected 😂😂 1mo
