Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph or maybe two of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph (or2) of the current book you are reading.
Today I am sharing the first chapter, first paragraph of a new book that I "won" in a giveaway at BermudaOnion's Weblog. When Kathy reviewed it I was interested in reading it, so I entered. Voila!, Kathy informed me that I had won and a copy would be arriving soon. I was really excited.
Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham
Ballantine Books an imprint of The Random House Publishing Group
"Begin whenever you're ready," comes the voice from the back of the house.
Oh, I'm ready.
After all, I've prepared for this day for years. The Day of the Most Important Audition of a Lifetime Day. Now that it's finally here, I'm going to make a good impression. I'm sure of it. I might even book the job. The thought makes me smile, and I take a deep breath, head high, body alert, but relaxed. I'm ready alright. I'm ready to speak my first line.
"Eeesssaaheeehaa." The sound that comes out of me is thin and high, a shrill wheezing whine, like a slowly draining balloon or a drowning cat with asthma.
What do you think, would you read on?
Did I already say I am so looking forward to this book? I have been a fan of Lauren Graham since seeing Evan Almighty and watching her in Parenthood.
Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
