This Time, The Last Sentence

Followers of this blog know that I often introduce books that I am reading by using the title, Opening Paragraphs.


Today, as Christmas gifts, I received three books from my daughters and below is the last sentence of the first chapter of the one of those books.

“Our wounds we wear like temporary garments until they are forgotten, but our stories, we don them forever”.  

That is a powerful sentence.

From The Book of Barkley, Love and life through the eyes of a Labrador Retreiver, by L. B. Johnson.

I think I am going to like this book and the blog by the same name.

  2. Reading a book my daughter in law borrowed to me: Mrs. Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. I will say it is interesting in a weird way.
