Every Tuesday, I'll be posting the opening paragraph (sometimes maybe a few) 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 that I started over the weekend....it's different, but good..
The Land of Decoration
Henry Holt and Co - March 2012
"IN THE BEGINNING there was an empty room, a little bit of space, a little bit of light, a little bit of time.
I said, I'm going to make fields, and I made them from place mats, carpet, brown corduroy, and felt. Then I made rivers from crepe paper, plastic wrap and shiny tinfoil, and mountains from papier mache and bark. And I looked at the fields and I looked at the rivers and I looked at the mountains and I saw that they were good."
