Great Opening Lines of Fiction in Punch Card Form

Check out these iconic opening lines of fiction in punch card form from Ptak Science Books, made using a punch card emulator on kloth.net:

Isn’t this great? I bumped into a wonderful site called kloth.net (http://www.kloth.net/services/cardpunch.php) that provides a free-to-all and unrestricted use of their punch card emulator. It was found while looking for dating ideas for an IBM 5081 card that I have that has programming information for the BINAC computer (ca. late 1940’s), and kloth.net had info on the history of IBM cards as well as the emulator–plus other stuff. Completely distracted from the BINAC quest, I created some cards using some great first lines of literature. You can play too!

We made our own below – it’s pretty addictive! Can you guess the what book it’s from?
