First Chapter -- First Paragraph -- Tuesday Intros!

Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros. This week's intro is from Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on the Life with John F. Kennedy:

Jackie when do you think the President first began to think and act seriously about the presidency? When did he begin to see himself, do you suppose, as a possible president?

I think he was probably thinking about it for an awfully long time, long before I even knew, and I say this because I remember the first year we were married, I heard him at the Cape. He was in a room with his father, talking and I came in and they were talking about something -- about the vice presidency. Well, this was just the year after he had been elected a senator.


  1. I am one of those who have always had a fascination with the Kennedy Family, in fact I am reading Fairy Tale Interrupted, about JJr.

    Your intro pulls me in so I am sure I'll try this one as well down the road. Enjoy!

  2. Fascinating historical book! Good tease.

  3. I've never really been interested in the Kennedy family, although I bet it's full of interesting stories and bits of their lives.
