My Book Beginnings is taken from THE GLASS OCEAN by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig and Karen White:

I am still reading this book since I was away last week.  It is VERY good.

"The evening had turned blue and soft, the way New York does in May, and I decided to walk to the book club and save the bus fare.  According to Mimi's Facebook message, the group was gathering at her apartment on Park Avenue, deep inside the plummy center of the Seventies---at least thirty minutes from my place on Riverside Drive---but I didn't mind."

  2. I loved the opening lines of The Glass Ocean. I felt like I was walking along with the narrator. Enjoy your weekend, and here's mine: “THREE THINGS ABOUT ELSIE”

  3. Sounds like a good book. I've previously read two of the three authors and will have to add this one to my wishlist. This week I have As Death Draws Near by Anna Lee Huber - a historical mystery. Happy reading!

  4. I like the cover and the opening sounds interesting. I'm not sure I would walk 30 minutes to book club. I would be afraid I would get sweaty. See what we are featuring at Girl Who Reads
