In response to Bluebookbelle’s Bookish Photo A Day Challenge – February 2015 #AWORphotoaday
The iconic opening line for me, is this one from
Ring Of Bright Water by Gavin Maxwell.
(please click on the book for my ‘Favourite Book’ blog posting)
I have chosen this line simply because this book seems to have been with me all my life. Someone once said:
“some books are like friends – the good ones will stay with you all of your life.”
This is the first line:
“I sit in a pitch-panelled kitchen-living room, with an otter asleep upon its back among the cushions on the sofa, forepaws in the air, with the expression of tightly shut concentration that very small babies wear in sleep”.
