First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #26 and Tuesday Teaser


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.

This week I'm featuring the opening paragraph from a book I borrowed from the library, I Still Dream About You by Fannie Flagg.  This book has been selected as a next read by one of my book clubs, so I will be starting it soon.

Read on after the intro for my Tuesday Teaser.

 I Still Dream About You
 Publisher:  Random House Publishing Group
Publication Date:  November 9, 2010

September 1955

It's funny what a person will remember so many years later; what sticks in your mind and what doesn't.  Whenever he thought back to the year he had worked at the Western Union office, he remembered that little girl.
What do you think?  Would you continue reading?  I'll be reading this one for an early September book club meeting.  Since I haven't read a book by Fannie Flagg before, I am really looking forward to it. 

Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, is a weekly event where bloggers open to a random page and share a teaser from somewhere on that page--no spoilers allowed.
Here's my teaser from I Still Dream About You by Fannie Flagg:
"Naturally, doing something like this would never have been her first choice, but after having made out list after list of all the pros and cons of her life and thoroughly exploring every other possible solution, it had become painfully clear that she had no other option." ~ p. 7
