Book Beginnings on Friday: November 19, 2010

How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. The link-up will be here at A Few More Pages every Friday.

Thanks to Becky at Page Turners for starting this meme and to Rose City Reader for inspiring it!

Today my Book Beginning comes from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Part I of the movie was released in theaters today, and in my excitement I just had to feature the book today. Here's the first line:
The two men appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane.
I've got a pile of TBR books right now, but I just couldn't resist picking Harry Potter out of my bookshelf this week. This isn't the most earth-shattering first line, but I remember being absolutely excited to read it when it came out in 2007. The first time I read the book it made me wonder who the two men were and whether they were good guys or bad guys. I'm planning to go see the movie on Monday with my mom and grandma (who are both big HP fans too).

So, what is the first line of your current read, and how did you like it? Please leave the link to your specific post, not just to the front page of your blog.
