Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - August 20th
Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?
If you'd like to play along on Teaser Tuesdays, just click the button above.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!
This week I'm reading...(not the cheeriest of beginnings, would you continue
I looked around the small room. An array of full-length iron bars preceded my view out onto the walkway and cellblock D at the medium security facility in Central California. The bars were spaced so that even an anorexic woman couldn't slip between them. The other three walls consisted of cold, gray concrete. My cellmate and I had covered the walls with newspaper clippings, posters, photos, anything to make it feel more comfortable. After all, it had been my home for the last four years, more or less, but I don't know if anyone really gets comfortable on the inside, even Jorge, my cellmate. He made this life, my life inside, if one could call it that, possible. I kicked the small cardboard box at my feet. A guard had been nice enough to give it to me, to put my things in.
