I'm feeling a little better since my fever broke, and with my head a little clearer, I was thinking how I often wish I had something to blog about on Tuesdays. It's one of those days when I stare at the blank screen and usually come up empty.
Well, yesterday afternoon (home sick from work and reading), I started a new book, with a fabulous opening paragraph, and a light bulb went off. Why don't I share this fabulous opening paragraph with all my blogging buddies.
So in hoping to make this a weekly happening, every Tuesday, I'll drop what I'm doing and share with you the opening paragraph of my current read, which I suspect in some cases might be a yawner. ( I hope no one is doing this already on another day...if so, mea culpa...please forgive me).
So without further ado, this week's : First Chapter~First Paragraph~Tuesday Intro is from,
(1976 - Picador/St Martin's Press)
"Neither of the Grimes sisters would have a happy life, and looking back it always seemed that the trouble began with their parents divorce. That happened in 1930, when Sarah was nine years old and Emily was five. Their mother, who encouraged both girls to call her "Pookie," took them out of New York to a rented house in Tenafly, New Jersey, where she thought the schools would be better and where she hoped to launch a career in suburban real estate. It didn't work out--very few of her plans for independence ever did--and they left Tenafly after two years, but it was a memorable time for the girls."
