Some Book Porn... Of the Wordy Nature!

A few people mentioned how Godmother: The Secret Cinderella Story by Carolyn Turgeon sounds good. Well, I decided to ignore my scary library pile and start it tonight... I hope the whole book is as good as the first paragraph:

I loved arriving at the bookstore first thing in the morning, when the streets were still quiet, the sun half risen, and the whole place felt like a secret meeting room. I liked walking through the still-dark city, as if I were wading through air--the buildings like shadows looming on either side of me, the streets rushing forward in black rivers. There was something about the empty store, too, the books piled all around, that made you want to whisper and walk as slowly as you could. The city was always on top of you, pressing in, but the moment you stepped inside Daedalus Books, it felt like you'd closed your eyes and gone to sleep.
(Chapter 1, Page 1)

I don't want to get my hopes up too high... but I think I might be in love!

  3. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. It sounds so good that I want to run out and get a copy. And the fact that it starts out talking about books is a huge plus.
