Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader. We share the first sentence (or so) of the book we are reading, along with our initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
As always, Martha Storm was primed for action. Chin jutted, teeth gritted, and a firm grip on the handle of her trusty shopping trolley.
I saw this book recommended somewhere as a nice, sweet story and that sounded about where my head is these days. My concentration has gotten better but I don't think I can read a Dickens' novel or anything Classic and heavy duty. Still, I able to pay attention to audiobooks while I knit my charity hats, so that's an improvement in my Pandemic State of Mind. I look forward to finding out about the always-ready-for-action Martha!
It's got such a lovely title! We need to have books like these on our shelves.ReplyDelete

That does look cute! And I admire your dedication to listen to books. I always forget what I'm doing and walk away. LOL I'll have to keep reading, when I can. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week!ReplyDelete
I started listening to books when I was picking & packing orders all day for my online shop. Now that I've closed it, I knit charity hats while listening. It is a very nice story, too!Delete
