First Paragraph: Room With a View

Room With A ViewIt’s the perfect time of the year to read a beloved classic, Room With a View by E.M. Forster. I can snuggle in and let my mind take me to the beautiful countryside of Italy. Here’s how the story begins. When you read Miss Bartlett think Magge Smth who plays her in the movie version.

“The Signora had no business to do it,” said Miss Bartlett, “no business at all. She promised us south rooms with a view close together, instead of which here are north rooms, looking into a courtyard, and a long way apart. Oh, Lucy!”

 What do you think? Did it make you want to keep reading?
