Today is Tuesday--- which means I'll be joining up with Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea and her First Chapter, First Paragraph
Where, bloggers post the first paragraph of a book they are thinking of reading --- and get everyone's opinion to see if it grabbed them from the beginning or not.

The first time I died was the summer I turned seventeen. I remember the air being so hot you could smell the pluff mud baking in the sun, the scent sulfur-sweet and strong enough to curl your toes, the tall stems of sweetgrass listless, their tips bowed in submission. Blood sat like melted copper in my open mouth as I rose above my broken body, splayed like a rag doll beside the dirt road. Let me go, I thought as I hovered, weightless. But I felt the pull of a gossamer thread of conscience and retribution that tethered me to this earth. Before I heard the screams of the sirens and my mother's wailing, I knew I wouldn't stay dead for long.
I think I will keep reading it!
The other night when I had finished a book, this one was in the pile of 4 from me to choose from!
I posted this pic that night:
(I wanted help choosing)
I always ask the Handyman for some help choosing a new book to read because it's sometimes hard to me to pick--there are so many I want to read! But, as usual, the Handyman walks by and taps the first one in line.
(Along the Infinite Sea was first in line, )
but I even asked him if I could read the first paragraph to help him better help me!
Hey--it works for this meme, right?
He said no thank you.
And just looks at me and shakes his head!
And said....AND SAID that.... said that, "I was weird".
Can this marriage be saved???
