Book Beginnings on Friday - February 25

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. This weekly meme is hosted by  A Few More Pages every Friday.  Check out their blog for a list of other book beginnings.

Ben and Me: An Astonishing Life of Benjamin Franklin by His Good Mouse Amos - Discovered, Edited, and Illustrated by Robert Lawson

"SINCE THE RECENT death of my lamented friend and patron Ben Franklin, many so-called historians have attempted to write accounts of his life and his achievements.  Most of these are wrong in so many respects that I feel the time has now come for me to take pen in paw and set things right."

Doesn't this must make you want to keep reading?
