"I have always liked to take a breath of the evening, to smell the air, whether it is sweetly scented and balmy with the flowers of midsummer, pungent with the bonfires and leaf-mold of autumn, or crackling cold from frost and snow." 
The Woman In Black 
by Susan Hill
 
Thoughts: I haven't quite started on this, but already I like the way the author writes. What a descriptive sentence! And looking ahead, the next sentence is equally descriptive. I feel like I already know a little bit about the main character based on his enjoyment of the different scents in the air different times of year.
