Opening Sentence of the Day: I Capture the Castle

"I write this sitting in the kitchen sink." -- I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. This was the book I chose for my book club selection. It has been on my radar screen -- as well as my TBR shelf -- for a while and I am very excited to finally read it. It was first published in 1948. I watched the movie several years ago and remember liking it, but not much about it.

I have this on my tbr list for the classics challenge. I can't wait to see what you think of it. Sure is an intriguing first sentence.

And I write this sitting in the bathroom sink. No, I jest, I write this sitting in my chair, wondering why I haven't read "I Capture the Castle" yet...

I loved that book, and the first sentence IS one that just sticks in my mind. Enjoy!

I am now about 1/3 of the way through and I love this book. I want to plant myself on the couch (not in a sink) and read the rest of it all the way through.
