First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros

Every Tuesday, I'll be posting the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book I decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along.

This week's selection was recommended highly by Ti, of Book Chatter:

(My 1st Library Kindle Download)
It was so simple too!

Welcome to the Future 
"EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING IS PART OF A GRAND universal plan,  That's what my Nana always says.  We're not alive just to lounge around and contemplate our umbilicus.  We're metaphysical beings" Open us up, and there's more rattling around in there than just brain sacs and fatty tissue.  We are full of imperceptible essences.  Invisible spectrums. Patterns. Ideas.  We're containers of awesome phenomena!  Which is why it is important to live right.  You have to be attuned to what's around you, and you have to keep from clogging your receptors with crap.  According to my Nana, the universe is sending signals every day, and it's up to us whether we want to listen.  We can either perk up our ears, or walk around like dead piles of dermis. I always preferred the former.  Which is why I found myself up on top of the roof of our dome on that fall Sunday when everything began."

 Would you read this one based on the first paragraph intro?


  1. I absolutely love this -- I would absolutely keep reading!

  2. Book sounds interesting. First download huh? So, how long do you get to keep it? My library has the e-book option too. I'm looking forward to trying it.

  3. I definitely would keep reading!

  4. Tantalizing how he ends that first chapter - "...when it all began."
    Hope you will visit my teaser quote

  5. Wish my library offered e-books. When I asked about them they looked at me like that had no idea what I was talking about.
    That book does sound interesting.

  6. Based on this first paragraph, I would totally keep reading this one! I am intrigued at the event he is hinting at now!

  7. I do like the teaser at the end of the paragraph. http://paulita-ponderings.blogspot.com/

  8. This sounds very intriguing. I'll be watching for your review of it. Have a good day Diane!

  9. Great choice, Diane! I listed this book on Goodreads and my tbr list after reading about it at Ti's blog!
    I'm interested to see what you think about it!

    I posted my First Chapter:
    Amy's First Chapter First Paragraph

    I hope you like it!

  10. Based on the first paragraph, I'd say this book is full of simple philosophy. Sounds interesting.

    I've been reading these first paragraphs for quite a while and decided to join in. Below is the link to my First Paragraph.

  11. Sorry, this doesn't appeal to me. Too sci/fi.

  12. This sounds very good--yes, I'd read it.

    You've won a book from me, Diane! :)

  13. Glad to know that it was easy to download a library book. Is there a time limit?

    Mine is here

  14. I'd definitely be interested in this one!

    And this is mine - a journey through China:

  15. Kay and Nise...eBook loans are 14 days for us.

    Mary...too funny, no clue about eBooks!

  16. My son, the non-reader, loved this book! Read it in a week. Which tells me a lot.

  17. What a powerful intro. Makes me want to pick it up.

  18. I would definitely read this!! And probably will at some point.

    And now another thing to see if my library has!

  19. I did read it and it is very good. Hope you enjoy it as well.
