First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #91

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .


First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

Today I'm featuring the opening from a book I recently borrowed from the library . . .

The Strange Library  
The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami

The library was even more hushed than usual.

My new leather shoes clacked against the gray linoleum.  Their hard, dry sound was unlike my normal footsteps,  Every time I get new shoes, it takes me a while to get used to their noise.

A woman I'd never seen before was sitting at the circulation desk, reading a thick book.  It was extraordinarily wide.  She looked as if she were reading the right-hand page with her right eye, and the left-hand page with her left.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?  
What are you reading now or planning to read soon?
