First Chapter, First Paragraph, is a meme hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea. Anyone can play — just copy the first paragraph of the first chapter (or prologue) and include a picture of the book cover. Leave your link at Bibliophile by the Sea. This week I’m reading Postcards from the Edge by Carrie Fisher.
You know how I always seem to be struggling, even when the situation doesn’t call for it? Well, I finally found a place where my struggling fits right in: the sunny Middle East. Brooding and moping doesn’t seem overdramatic in Israel or Egypt or Turkey. Today I stood in a recently bombed-out train station. I looked at the charred, twisted metal and I thought, “Finally my outsides match my insides.” Maybe I should take a tour of the world’s trouble spots and really relax. See you soon.
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, now being hosted by Ambrosia of The Purple Booker.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! So, from the same novel:
Day Three: All of the therapists here seem to be former addicts. They have this air of expertise. p.10
Tell us what you think. Would you keep reading? Have you read any of Carrie Fisher‘s books? This is the first of hers I’ve read and I’m sorry I waited so long to read her. Leave a comment with a link to your First Chapter, First Paragraph/Teaser Tuesday post. Thanks for stopping by.
