This is where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon.
Here’s what I’m reading next:
The young man pushed his way to the front of the crowd, offering a quick smile of apology to those who grumbled a protest. He was here. Finally, after all these months, he would see the storyteller.
Excitement bubbled ridiculously within him. He’d heard much of the bard of the Black Forest, but only after he’d gathered enough coin had he been able [to] venture into the woods to find the stage of the storyteller. His mother had no notion of his whereabouts this eve, and he’d sworn his sister to secrecy with a promise to tell her of all he experienced and to bring her with him when next he dared to venture into the woods.
