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.
