Hello everyone,

I am reading a book english : The Zookeeper’s Wife of Diane Ackerman. I want to share with you the first paragraph of the book :

Chapter 1

Summer, 1935

At dawn in an outlying district of Warsaw, sunlight swarmed around the trunks of blooming linden trees and crept up the white walls of a 1930s stucco and glass villa where the zoo director and his wife slept in a bed crafted from white birch, a pale wood used in canoes, tongue depressors, and Windsor chairs. On their left, two tall windows crowned a sill wide enough for sitting, with a small radiator tucked below. Oriental rugs warmed the parquet floor, where strips of wood slanted together as repeating feathers, and a birch armchair squared one corner of the room.

It’s the first article in english but maybe not the last article.

Good reading!
