Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesdays. It is a chance to read and share the first paragraph or two of your current read or maybe one you hope to start soon. Join us and grab the button at Diane's Blog, then link back your current read's first paragraph of the first chapter. Then look to see what the rest of us are reading.
This week I will start
but I shared the first paragraph back in June of 2013. I did not pick it up again, but it is on the list of my books to read for the Mega Mix II Challenge on Goodreads. It fits the new author section of that challenge. So I will share with you the first chapter first paragraph of another book I am reading to work at completing #3 in the challenge - "Finish a Series".
I read the 1st one and own the set of 3. I am sharing them with my oldest granddaughter, and before you "gasp", I will tell you that she is married and 29 years old. Here is the excerpt.
I have survived Day Three Post-Christian, and my first day at work. It has been a welcome distraction. The time has flown by in a haze of new faces, work to do, and Mr. Jack Hyde. Mr. Jack Hyde....he smiles down at me, his blue eyes twinkling, as he leans against my desk.
"Excellent work, Ana. I think we're going to make a great team."
Somehow I manage to curl my lips upward in a semblance of a smile.
So would you read on, have you read the series?
Today I did laundry and began again to work on a quilt that I started a year ago. It is called Snow Flurries and it is a Crabapple Hill pattern. Lot of small pieces, some embroidery, and some beads. Shades of aqua, green, pink and blue. Very cool colors. Some of my friends who also chose to do the pattern are way ahead of me, one for sure has it completed and a couple haven't started yet. I hope to have some pictures soon. Maybe they will be only "in progress", but you can see what it is starting to look like.
Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
