Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph or maybe two of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph (or2) of the current book you are reading.
His two girls are curled together like animals whose habit is to sleep underground, in the smallest space possible. Cosima knows she's the older, even when she's unconscious: one of her arms lies over Halimeda's shoulder as if she intends to protect them both from their bad dreams. Dr. Homer Noline holds his breath, trying to see movement there in the darkness, the way he's watched pregnant women close their eyes and listen inside themselves trying to feel life.
Would you read on? I probably wouldn't based on this first paragraph, but it is an upcoming selection of my F2F book club. It is a favorite author of one of our members and she recommended it. She is a Jr High social studies teacher, so I know she is intelligent and well read. So I will read more of this when the time draws closer to it's read date. I'm sharing it with you today because it is new to my bookself. I found it by accident in the Used Section of our Hastings. It is a hardcover and it was only $5.49. Could not pass it up at that price, knowing I was going to read it anyway.
Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
