Every Tuesday, Diane @ Bibliophile by the Sea
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 Stillmeadow Daybook by Gladys Taber. I've been following Nan's (Letters From a Hill Farm) monthly posts about this book and the author's life. I was so inspired by them that I had to get my hands on a copy (Thank you public library!) and read it for myself!!
I sat on the old stone steps this morning, paring potatoes. It was one of those mild sweet days in early spring, with a sense of beginnings in the damp sunny air. Whenever I lifted my eyes to look at the blue Connecticut sky, and the soft line of hills that roll away toward Litchfield, Hollyberry Red, the young Irish, thrust her velvet muzzle in the pan and neatly removed a potato. Then she flew around the yard, tossing it in the air, and catching it.
Would you continue reading this one
based on the opening paragraph?
