Book Beginnings

"Alice sat at her desk in their bedroom distracted by the sounds of John racing through each of the rooms on the first floor. She needed to finish her peer review of a paper submitted to the Journal of Cognitive Psychology before her flight, and she'd just read the same sentence three times without comprehending it."

I've been hearing about this book and am really curious. The beginning is interesting and definitely relatable!
This sounds like an excellent story. I didn't realize the movie was based on a book! I'll read the book before seeing the movie and envision Julianne Moore as Alice as I'm reading. Do you do that too?

I didn't realize it was a book!

I haven't been leaving comments for awhile, but I appreciate you participating in BBOF. Thanks!

I enjoy all the comments. Yes, I read the book first before seeing the movie. I'm not a regular moviegoer tho. Would like to go more busy reading. lol.

I'll bet it did make a good book club discussion. It's an issue or condition faced by so many people.

Glad to see you, Rose City Reader. I feel so at home on your blog. Love to come there.
