To celebrate, I'm going this week's Book Beginning and Friday 56. (Okay, fine, I'd do that anyway, but that's beside the point.)
This week's selection is Murder in the Mystery Suite by Ellery Adams.
And here's how it begins:
There were books everywhere. Hundreds of books. Thousands of books. There were books of every size, shape, and color.
Does that beginning appeal to book lovers or what?
And here's the first sentence from page 56:
If the Hastings look-alike's angry expression had Jane concerned, it was nothing compared to the unease she felt when she saw a man step from the shadows in the corner of the room to follow Felix into the hall.
Now to work on some posts to go up while I'm away and get to bed. Have a great weekend!
