This week’s book is
The first line reads.” It’s a dreary afternoon, just after lunch, when I finally find out that you’re dead”.
A promising first line, hints of a missing person, now known to be dead, and a good mystery to be solved.
I did my last library shift this week, before we move, if we move. I would probably have kept going another couple of weeks but can’t risk it with my husband’s poor health. It was a odd shift, much quieter than usual, books coming back and not so many going out, enquiries too about e books. And a slight edge of fear as we rubbed in the hand gel and disappeared to keep washing our hands. A sad way to finish my time as a volunteer, I have loved every other time for the last three and a half years. Not certain how long the library can stay open, as most of the voluunteers are over 70.
This book is the only one I have out on loan, after this I shall be reading from my to be read pile. Quite looking forward to that, and of course there is always all my other books to re-read and my trusty Kindle. Life without books is unthinkable. Incredibly grateful that I am a reader. Escapism is sometimes highly desirable.
