This week I am reading:
One Hundred Candles

The Third Sentence:
After opening presents in yet another beige and floral hotel room and wolfing down the hotel's complimentary cinnamon rolls, my family piled into our van and drove nearly an hour west of Cleveland to Lake Sanitarium, a somber-looking brick monstrosity that was, despite its name, located nowhere near a lake.
My first thought is that this is the longest third sentence I have had in seven weeks!
My second thought is that the Lake Sanitarium is not near a lake but was named after either the founder, a great doctor from the sanitarium, or a benefactor.
Now we can also deduce that the family has different holiday customs, although that deduction comes mostly from the many other sentences in the book. I also could say there are no known or diagnosed celiacs in the family or they would become ill. Also, they must stay in hotels with the same banal decor for a reason.
Look for my review this weekend!
