Every Tuesday, I'll be posting the opening paragraph (sometimes two) of a book I decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along. This week's selection is from a book by an author I've enjoyed in the past, Anne Tyler. Her latest book is scheduled to release on April 3rd -- Knopf Publishers.

"We were strolling through Belvedere Square, for instance, on an early-spring afternoon when we met our old next-door neighbor, Jim Rust. 'Well, what do you know,' he said to me. 'Aron!' Then he noticed Dorothy beside me. She stood peering up at him with one hand shielding her forehead from the sun. His eyes widened and he turned to me again."
What do you think of this intro? Would you keep on reading?
