First Chapter -- First Paragraph -- Tuesday Intros
Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea has started a fun new meme, First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros. Below is the first paragraph/chapter of the appropriately titled the riveting memoir Passage by Sandy Powers. Enjoy!
"Can you deliver the hospital bed before noon" I glanced at my watch: 9:30. "Eleven? Yes that's right. Englewood. I'll be waiting"
I ran my fingers through my short blond hair. This gives me time to arrange nursing.
An hour later. I lightly knocked on the door of my parents' house. No answer. I unlocked the front door with my key. My eighty-six-year-old father was napping in his brown recliner in the living room. The blaring television switched to the local twenty-four-hour news channel, which he regularly watched. The same news over and over. How much new news can there be? I shook my head. I turned down the TV volume then gently tapped my father's shoulder.
I'm a reader/commuter in the DC Metro Area. My daily commute to work provides me with ample time to do what I love most: read! Whether its chick lit, literature, memoirs or other non fiction you can always find me with a book.
