"It began like this. I went to the shelves on the landing to look for a book I knew was there. It was not. But plenty of others were and among them I noticed at least a dozen I realised I had never read.
I pursued the elusive book through several rooms and did not find it in any of them, but each time I did find at least a dozen, perhaps two dozen, perhaps two hundred, that I had never read.
And then I picked out a book I had read but forgotten I owned. And another and another. After that came the books I had read, knew I owned and realised that I wanted to read again.
I found the book I was looking for in the end, but by then it had become far more than a book. It marked the start of a journey through my own library."
Howards End is on the Landing
by Susan Hill
As the end of the year approaches, I have come to the realization that I may only finish one or two more books. Perusing my shelves, I spied Susan Hill's book (subtitled A Year of Reading from Home), and thought it would be the perfect lead-in to The TBR Double Dare. I'm only proposing to read "from home" for three months, but these first few sentences have me even more excited to begin.
Tuesday Intros is hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea. Every week she posts the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book she decided to read based on the opening paragraph(s). Feel free to grab the button and play along.
