Opening Sentence of the Day: Started Early, Took My Dog



"Leeds: 'Motorway City of the Seventies.'"

-- Started Early, Took My Dog by Kate Atkinson. The first chapter is a flashback to 1975.

This is the fourth and latest in Atkinson's Jackson Brodie mystery series.  These are amazing books.  They are literary novels with a mystery woven in -- not the other way around. 

I can't wait to spend this rainy weekend with this book.

Here is a list of all of Kate Atkinson's books. The last four on the list are the Jackson Brodie series.

I love the cover on this one, and after seeing the name Kate Atkinson over and over again, I will finally pick her up at the library this week.

picky girl: She has many non-mystery books that are also very good. The Jackson Brodie series starts with Case Histories.

The title alone makes the book tempting to go find on Amazon.
