As you know I am really impressed with the concept behind Waimakariri Libraries Twitter account First_Lines, where they take the first line of a book and tweet it with a link back to the catalog.
In fact I am so impressed I asked if they would mind if I used it on the Tararua Library Twitter account. They, being lovely collegial people said yes. In fact we had an idea to make it a challenge. Let see what first lines libraries can find. So for all you library tweeters out there, tweet the first line of a book with a link back to your catalog. Include the hastag #firstlines and lets see how many like the same ones, how many bad ones there are and how many good ones!
