Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where I share the first paragraph or (2) of a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us? Feel free to grab the image and link your post below.
This week I'm featuring an intro from :The Black Isle, by Sandi Tan
Hachette - July 2012PART ONE
" Anyone who has lived as long as I have, and who has done the things I have, knows there will come a reckoning. Mine announced its arrival quietly--in a library, no less.
Every Saturday, like a faithful grave-tender, I would go to visit a certain book at the Archive of Wartime Affairs. The book was part of my private curriculum--my research, if you will--not that I ever had to worry about secrecy. This being 2010, the Archive, perched atop a crumbling billiards parlor, is little known and even less loved."
What do you think ? -- Would you keep reading? (I have not started this one yet - but am thinking about it - I liked the intro)
