Mailbox Monday is the gathering
place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to
envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists!
Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia @ A
Girl and Her Books, has a permanent home now at Mailbox Monday.
*Please join Rose City Reader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the
book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the
sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's
name. *Taken directly from Rose City Reader's Blog Page.
My book beginnings is taken from STOLEN BEAUTY by Laurie Lico Albanese:
"I was a love-struck newlywed when Hitler came to Austria. Outside, the Ringstrasse was streaming with cars, trams, and pedestrians in belted trench coasts. Inside, we were waltzing and drinking French champagne."
