First Lines: “A sort of literacy test.”

Bibliophiles test your memory of hundreds of first lines, from children’s books to murder mysteries. From easier than easy: “We called him Old Yeller;” to a bit more challenging: “Once upon a time there was a Martian named Valentine Michael Smith;” (Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein), First Lines beats another tired game of Solitaire and serves as great fodder for the booklover’s eternal question: “what should I read next?”
