Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros sharing the first paragraph, maybe two, of a book that I'm reading or plan to read soon.
As some of you know, I've been in a bit of a reading slump but, I must say, I started this yesterday and am a third of the way through and really enjoying it.
The Music Shop; Rachel Joyce
Random House - Jan/2018
There once was a music shop. From the outside it looked like any shop, in any backstreet. It had no name above the door. No record display in the window. There was just a homemade poster stuck to the glass. FOR THE MUSIC YOU NEED!!! EVERYONE WELCOME!! WE ONLY SELL VINYL! IF CLOSED, PLEASE TELEPHONE--though after that it was anyone's guess because, along with more happy exclamation marks, the only eligible number was an 8 that could well be a 3; there were other things that might be triangles.
Does this intro make you curious for more?
Please feel free to join in each Tuesday with your own "First Chapter, First Paragraph Intro" by linking your post from the book you are reading below.
