  1. Choose five to ten of your all time favorite books.
  2. Take the first sentence of the first chapter and make a list in your journal.
  3. Don't reveal the author or the title of the book.
  4. Now everyone try and guess!

I've censored things where it would be blatently obvious. Oh, and not all are books. About half are computer games. Come to think of it, not all the books are my all-time favourites, since I don't have them with me at uni. So they're whatever I have to hand that I particularly like. But yeah, guess away!

  1. I am Doctor Thadeus P. Brain the 3rd. The P stands for Puzzle.
  2. These days it seems like any idiot with a laptop computer can churn out a business book and make a few bucks.
  3. ~ never knew for certain why he started seeing the dead.
  4. I don't think my stepfather much minded dying.
  5. This is a story of courage, honour and worms. [Worms (the Wormsong) ~ ptristan]
  6. Ahhh! There's nothing like a foot massage at the end of a long day....
  7. A long, long time ago... when the world was on the verge of being swallowed by shadow... [Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap ~ nendil]
  8. ~ was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank and of having nothing to do: [Alice in Wonderland ~ nendil]
  9. I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the book would not be destroyed as I had planned. [Myst ~ ricold]

Greetings, random friend.

#8 is Alice in Wonderland. #7 is Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, if I recall correctly.

I've seen #9 before in other "ID the book/game from the first line" games, but since I haven't read(played?) it myself, I don't remember what it is.

Yup, you did indeed recall them correctly. I did consider putting just "A long, long time ago..." for #7, but decided that would be too vague.

I'm going to take a stab in the dark, and say #5 is Earthworm Jim.

And I know #8 Is Alice in Wonderland.

Nope, #5 is not earthworm jim.

#8 is right, but you got beaten to it by nendil.
