Bolded items are still outstanding. If you know any of the answers, please help me out! No cheating by Googling all the first lines though! If you want to double-check your answer, that's fine, but please just don't go looking for the answers. There are a few lines that I definitely recognize, but I have no idea where they come from, so this should be very educational all around.

Weekly Geeks #21-First Lines challenge
Dewey, over at The Hidden Side of a Leaf, has posted 100 first lines from books. Our mission, if we choose to accept it, is to identify the books (and authors) from which these lines came. While I was only able to identify a few (and, sadly, some of the most obvious few I think), I thought this sounded like fun! Listed below are all the first lines that need to be identified. I will make a separate post for this challenge, and as answers come in, I will remove them from this list and post them on the "Weekly Geeks #21-First Lines Answers" post. I've never participated in a Weekly Geeks before, so I hope I am doing this right!***UPDATE-WOW, WAS THIS A BAD IDEA! LOL! Everything is now in one post, so don't go searching for my "Weekly Geeks #21-First Lines Answers" post. I went ahead and left the original text of this post in here in case anyone else was considering doing something similar or in case anyone was in the middle of reading this as I was editing. I am doing my best to avoid unnecessary WTF??s.
