BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
After a busy spring, my law partner and I coasted through summer. Now we are back at the grindstone! We have a sexual assault trial against a public school coming up at the end of the month and an appeal brief due in the Boy Scout bankruptcy on behalf of our sex abuse clients next month. I was hoping to spend more time with this blog in the fall, but looks like work calls instead!
I still hope to find time to read at least. Even when I don't have time to post about books, I always have my nose stuck in one.
And I always have time for Book Beginnings on Fridays. Please join me to share the first sentence (or so) of the book that you are reading. Or share from a book that caught your fancy this week.
MY BOOK BEGINNING
I had hoped my three weeks at the MacDowell artist colony would be a happy ending to a harrowing two years.
-- Crybaby: Infertility, Illness, and other Things That Were Not the End of the World by Cheryl E. Klein (2022, Brown Paper Press).
Cheryl E. Klein is a "failed perfectionist and successful hypochondriac" who had a hard time accepting that the world would not end when she was unable to have a baby. Her new memoir follows her through a series of disasters that bring her to consider the adventure of open adoption.
YOUR BOOK BEGINNINGS
Please add the link to your Book Beginnings post in the linky box below. Use the #bookbeginnings hashtag if you share on social media.
Another fun Friday event is The Friday 56. Share a two-sentence teaser from page 56 of your book, or 56% of the way through your e-book or audiobook, on this weekly event hosted by Freda at Freda's Voice.
MY FRIDAY 56
I didn't technically believe in fate, but maybe, once events were set in motion, there was a way to sniff out your own most likely future. Maybe life was threaded with motifs, and twins were one of mine.
