Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Introsto share the first paragraph sometimes two, of a book that she’s reading or planning to read soon.
I’ve shared the first line on Instagram (see below) but I’ll share the rest of the paragraph now. I just love this opening! Such promise; am just past the halfway mark but loving it so much!
“Whether I turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show. To begin my life with the beginning of my life, I record that I was born (as I have been informed and believe) on a Friday, at twelve o’clock at night. It was remarked that the clock began to strike, and I began to cry, simultaneously.” ~David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
