Great First Lines in Literature -- I love doing bulletin boards to promote books. This was an "interactive" bulletin board. The first line of the book was on the front cover - you lift the flap to see the book title and author. My favorite first line: "Countess Judith kept her husband's head in a box." From "The GleeMaiden" by Hamilton. Wrap books on display with brown paper and the printed line.
