Here is the first line of a book I’m reading now
Here are the book’s first lines:
“His wife had died in June and there was to be a memorial service for her in two weeks at the end of the summer…(The actual cover shows Gene, the widower, walking on the beach, seeking inspiration for his eulogy at the service.) He hadn’t been able to find his swim trunks that morning, so he was wearing a pair of pants Dary (his daughter) had chopped off at the knee.”
I am on page 155 of the novel, and so far, the reader has seen Gene grieve, muse over the memories of his wife, and endure the funeral service. Another character has been introduced, Adele, his housekeeper, and things are “moving fast.”
I hope to do a good deal of reading today after I finish grading the last of the Essay # 1’s from Wednesday’s class. I wish it were sunny and warm, so I could sit outside, put my feet up, and goof off. Very few places in the U.S. fit that description today.
ENJOY THE WEEKEND AND ATTACK THAT TBR PILE!
