The first lines of Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman

First Line Thoughts: When Mini Me read Book Scavenger several years ago, she was very excited to visit San Francisco.  My sister lives there and we made sure to find the fountain between the the Academy of Sciences and the DeYoung Museum.  I still love that city, even though I briefly lived there.  And on our most recent trip, we took the girls to the iconic City Lights Bookstore. 

I often peek at Mini Me's books even if I don't always have time to read them.  So when I saw the opening page (below), I was a bit jealous--Bertman came up with a brilliant idea for bookworms and bibliophiles:  a GAME in which you hunt for books!

The actual first lines are above and Bertman doesn't disappoint there either.  Mr. Griswold is a bit of a celebrity and the reader is hooked right away.  What makes him famous? What is his new game? It's all intriguing and her description of Mr. Griswold makes the reader want to know more.

Tell Dr. Bookworm!

Do you think a Book Scavenger game could work for real? Do you think people would respect the books?
