First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #47


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.

 My Beloved World  


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.
