First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea. It's an opportunity to share the first paragraph(s) of a book I am currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.
Today I'm featuring the opening paragraph from My Beloved World by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, which I borrowed from the library.
I was barely awake, and my mother was already screaming. I knew Papi would start yelling in a second. That much was routine, but the substance of their argument was new, and it etched that morning in my memory.
What do you think? Would you continue reading?I don't read many nonfiction titles, but I am looking forward to starting this one for a book club meeting next month. Justice Sotomayor is a role model and inspiration, who I am interested in knowing more about.
