This isn't the last Tuesday of the year to share a first paragraph but almost! Today I want to share the first paragraph of the first chapter of a book I hope to read very soon. I bought this book for my Kindle in December 2013.
Across the Miles
December 20th 2013
Emily and Julia stood outside the over packed car. Everything Emily currently owned was stuffed inside the station wagon. The beginning layers had been neat and orderly and then later items had been stuffed in wherever a spot could be found. It had felt like an impossible task, but now it was done. On the front seat were Emily's packed bag, some snacks and a bunch of CD's, some of music and others of novels, for her to listen to while traveling. It was like she was ready for a summer vacation, except they both knew this was no summer vacation but something a lot bigger.
So am I the only one who buys books and then doesn't read them for two or more years? I am guessing we all suffer from this dilemma. Would you continue with this one? I am intrigued now that I have reread the first paragraph.
Share the first paragraph of a book you are reading or maybe will read soon. Then link up with Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea. It's a chance to check out the first chapter and the first paragraph of a lot of titles you might not have considered.
Until next time
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
