Very excited to begin a new book. I've been reading mostly non-stop all winter with almost no notable books to record on my First Paragraphs blog. But just a short while ago, I pulled this paperback out of my library bag and my interest level took a dramatic upturn.
I love ut when a story just grabs you from the very first paragraph, and The Sea of Tranquility did that and more.
Many, many times I've wished to be a slower reader but I can't help but power through almost every book I read. Including, a part-day to polish-off (earlier this week) the non-fiction The Grand Tour, Around the World with the Queen of Mystery - Agatha Christy. I'm not an huge Agatha Christy fan, but I am a fan of PBS and of British fiction, in general. I did enjoy this edition of a portion of Christy's letters and memoir. I plan to read more in other published biographical materials.
In general, my love of reading is one of my most-valued gifts. Life-long learning, vocabulary-enhancing, boredom chasing adventures.
