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 this week is a book from my very own shelves...gasp!! I seriously am looking forward to reading this one because I've been wanting to dive into Christie's books for a few years now!!
The A.B. C. Murders by Agatha Christie
It was in June of 1935 that I came home from my ranch in South America for a stay of about six months. It had been a difficult time for us out there. Like every one else, we had suffered from world depression. I had various affairs to see to in England that I felt could only be successful if a personal touch was introduced. My wife remained to manage the ranch.
I need hardly say that one of my first actions on reaching England was to look up my old friend, Hercule Poirot.
Would you continue reading this one
based on the opening paragraph?
