Remnant Population #FirstParagraph #BookTubeAThon #BTAT17

I’m loving the BookTube-A-Thon this week. The Instagram photos, Youtube Vlogs, Twitter read-a-longs have been a lot of fun to check out when I can. I’ve been doing a good amount of reading as well (reading while cooking is great!). Currently, I’m reading Remnant Population by Elizabeth Moon which is a fantasy novel published in 1996. It was recommended by r/Fantasy (Reddit) group as an option for the “Too Old For This Crap” Fantasy Book Bingo Challenge square. This book will also count as the “character different from me” for BookTubeAThon challenge. Here’s the first paragraph:

“Between her toes the damp earth felt cool, but already sweat crept between the roots of her hair. It would be hotter today than yesterday, and by noon the lovely spice-scented red flowers of the dayvine would have furled their fragile cups, and drooped on the vine. Ofelia pushed the mulch deeper against the stems of the tomatoes with her foot. She liked the heat. If her daughter-in-law Rosara weren’t within sight, she would take off her hat and let the sweat evaporate. But Rosara worried about cancer from the sun, and Rosara was sure it wasn’t decent for an old woman to be outside with nothing on her head but thinning gray hair.”
