Tweeting the 1st lines of kids' books so you don't have to.
KidderLit is a fun way to discover new books and authors. The folks at KidderLit and its sister site TwitrLit are constantly combing through stacks of books to bring you new literary teasers. Every day we post the first line of a young adult or children's book here at KidderLit.com. The trick is that we don't tell you what the book is or who the author is. To find out, you have to click the link to be taken to the book's page on Amazon.

NOTE: I've ceased regular posts as of 7-31-16, after almost 9 years of 1st lines. But please feel free to explore the site. Try the Random 1st Line-inators on the right! They're fun.
