Tweeting the first lines of books so you don't have to.
TwitrLit serves up literary teasers twice daily. At about 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM Eastern Time I post the first line of a book, without the author's name or book title, but with a link to Amazon so readers can see what book the line is from. Why? Because it's fun! The posts are also available for subscription via RSS, Twitter, or on Facebook. The Canadian and UK versions of TwitrLit (see the footer to subscribe) link to Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk respectively.

Search by keyword, book title, or author:
