Book Beginnings
  
What is the first line of your current read, and how did you like it?

"From the earliest days of stories, when hunters came home from the hunt to tell of their exploits around the campfire while gnawing on a leg of beast, to the era of kings in castles listening to the storyteller at the royal dinner feast, to the time of TV dinners when whole families gathered to eat and watch movies together, stories and eating have been close companions."
I love folk stories about food!

"A picnic is any kind of outdoor party or feast, and once upon a time it meant a party to which every person brought some dish for all to share."
