The Hound of the Baskervilles | Arthur Conan Doyle, Sir

Mr. Sherlock Holmes, who was usually very late in the mornings, save upon those not infrequent occasions when he was up all night, was seated at the breakfast table.

“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. It seemed to me I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive, and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me. There was a padlock and a chain upon the gate. I called in my dream to the lodge-keeper, and had no answer, and peering closer through the rusted spokes of the gate I saw that the lodge was uninhabited.”

“Most days I wish I was a British pound coin instead of an African girl. Everyone would be pleased to see me coming.”

This book has been on TBR forever and I am hoping I will finally read it for #24in48. With a #firstline like that one I might have to make it next book. Had anyone else read it? #openinglines

Of all my books in my #24in48 TBR stack, my favorite opening line comes from The Last Cigarette on Earth by Benjamin Alire Saenz. “He has misspent a lifetime looking for himself.” #openinglines

#openinglines #24in48 the opening line of the book I‘m currently reading

jillrhudy Sounds perfect. 😂 my tastes are twisted. 2y
Tomigirl44 @jillrhudy So far, so good - it‘s a book club selection that I didn‘t choose, but it‘s okay. It‘s set just following WW1 outside London - I‘ll be posting more as I progress. 2y
