Los Angeles has a wonderful selection of independent bookstores, but some of the really good ones have closed over the last few years. Here's a bit of good news about one of my favorites, Skylight Books, which is located in one of the great L.A. neighborhoods, Los Feliz.
And here is this week's Booking Through Thursday question:
What are your favourite final sentences from books? Is there a book that you liked specially because of its last sentence? Or a book, perhaps that you didn’t like but still remember simply because of the last line?
I'm cheating a little here, because this is something my husband knows by heart, as does my best friend. It's the last line of The Great Gatsby, which, it turns out, it comes in handy to know every once in awhile, as it is appropriate to many situations:
"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
Ahh, the man could write.
