Opening Sentence of the Day: The Club Dumas

"The flash projected the outline of the hanged man on the wall."

-- The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte.

I have high expectations that this will be a fun book, although I know nothing about it besides what I read on the cover -- that it is a bookish mystery involving a rare manuscript of The Three Muscateers.  Someone (I can't remember who) gave it to me because my last name is Dumas.

I wanted to kick of the Christmas season with a book I read for pure enjoyment. Come the New Year, I'll have the energy for "important" books, or books I feel like I should read. But during Christmas, I like to read for cosy entertainment.

Although, this one will count for the Bibliophilic Books Challenge, so I will accomplish something.


  1. This one is on my TBR list (and waiting in the wings for the 2011 Off the Shelf Challenge where I will definitely get to some of the TBRs). I'll be interested to see what you think of it!

  2. One of my all-time favorites! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
