First Chapter Collection 06 by Various ( - ).

The first chapter of a book is often the hook to draw a reader in. It could make you eager for more or realize it isn't for you. Here we offer the sixth "First Chapter Collection" in which readers share the first chapters of a variety of fiction and non-fiction works.

I'm so pleased to see this!

I hope you don't mind, but I will include here a link to the earlier collections: https://librivox.org/group/579?primary_key=579&search_category=group&search_page=1&search_form=get_results. I thought some people would like to see which first chapters have been done already, not that that should discourage anyone from doing any first chapter they wish.

There is this collection, too, of books published in 1916: https://librivox.org/1916-first-chapters-collection-by-various/

Thank you for MCing this!

I already shared this with Grace. As the Group is searchable, it didn't seem necessary to include it here 8-)
