First Chapter, First Paragraph


Today is Tuesday--- which means I'll be joining up with Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea and her First Chapter, First Paragraph
Tuesday Intros.
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.


My paragraph:

"What's a girl like you doing stuck in a place like this?" the bartender asked, muscles straining against his hotel uniform as he threw down a cocktail napkin in front of me.
I looked around: three bar-stools, four fake dusty palm trees, fluorescent lighting. This was the kind of join that offered vending machines in lieu of room service.

Should I keep on reading?
What do you think?

This is my book  


It might not be for everybody, but.... it's
A memoir--which I love,  a spiritual search, which I love, kind of funny, which I love.   
I think I'll keep reading.

I have several of these types of memoirs sitting on my shelf unread. Now I want to add this one to it. Haha It. I like these types of memoirs too, although it's been ages since I last read one.
