posts the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book
she decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s).
Feel free to grab the banner and play along!
My selection for this week is Cross Currents by John Shors. I've read so many wonderful reviews of his work and John sent me an autographed copy of this title. I will be reading this one in November...for your viewing pleasure I also added a video that John created for his book. Enjoy!

Lek opened his eyes, though his body remained as still as the gecko on the ceiling. He watched it, as he often did, admiring its patience, aware of its seemingly perpetual hunger. The creature was the length of his forefinger, and the color of mahogany. Lek enjoyed gazing at the gecko, though he was jealous of its speed. If a moth landed nearby, the gecko moved as if lightning filled its veins. Yet in the absence of insects, the gecko was without motion, a silent sentinel that protected Lek's home from airborne invaders.
Would you continue reading this one based on the opening paragraph?
