Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews. Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book they are reading or that they plan to read soon.
The week, before our presidential election, I find myself in need of an easy, fun read. My pick is a book I got at a library sale in 2015 or so.
Nursing Homes are Murder, Mike Befeler
Five Star Publishing - 2015
"Deep in contemplation over how much longer my eighty-five year old body and soggy mind would last, I sat on the balcony of our Hibiscus Hotel room overlooking The Honolulu Ala Wai Yatch Harbor. I felt a surge of gratitude that my limbs moved and my organs did what they were supposed to, but I did have this one little problem--overnight my short-term memory disappeared like a mosquito being zapped in one of those electric traps. Getting old was a pisser, but I counted my blessings to be here in this tropical paradise with my family."
I chuckled at the intro, and thought this just might be my stress-free reading pick of the week. It is actually part of a series, but I'll try it anyways.
Would you read more or pass?
