First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . . 

. . . First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros . . . hosted by Yvonne at Socrates' Book Reviews, where bloggers share excerpts from a book they have read, are currently reading, or are planning to read.
Today I'm featuring a recent blog tour read, A Book Club to Die For by Dorothy St. James, the third book in the Beloved Bookroom mystery series. The excerpt shared is from an advance eBook provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

First Chapter:  Librarians are keepers of knowledge, caretakers of truth, and sowers of wisdom. Many of us rush out to share the world with our communities with the enthusiasm of a child who has suddenly mastered a new skill. We want people to know, to know . . . well, everything.

This is our mission. This is our passion.

We are the bringers.

We are the beacons cutting through the darkest of nights.


What do you think?  Would you continue reading? 

As a librarian, the opening paragraphs of this book perfectly express why I pursued the profession, and why I think it is more important than ever given the amount of misinformation being disseminated. Readers who love cozy mysteries, libraries, the written word, and books will no doubt find this series as delightful as I do.
