Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph of the current book you are reading.
This morning the library notified me that I had a knew download available. I love getting a library book through email. I clicked on the link then clicked on download and there it was on my Kindle.
This time I received The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George. Anyone who knows my obsession with France will know why I 'm excited about this book.
Here's the intro:
How on earth could I have let them talk me into it?The two generals of number 27 Rue Montagnard -- Madame Bernard, the owner, and Madame Rosalette, the concierge -- had caught Monsieur in a pincer movement between their ground-floor flats.Sounds like these ladies are masters of figurative language.
"That Le P. has treated his wife shamelessly."
"Scandalously. Like a moth treats a wedding veil."
"You can hardly blame some people when you look at their wives. Fridges in Chanel. But men? Monsters, all of them."
"Ladies, I don't quite know what..."
"Not you of course, Mosieur Perdu. You are cashmere compared with the normal yarn from which men are spun."
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is reading.
