First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #136

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .


First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

Today I'm featuring a book club read, My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem, which I borrowed from the library.

My Life on the Road 


I board a plane for Rapid City, South Dakota, and see a lot of people in black leather, chains, and tattoos.  Airline passengers usually look like where they're going--business suits to Washington, D.C., jeans to L.A.--but I can't imagine a convention of such unconventional visitors in Rapid City.  It's the kind of town where people still angle-park their cars in front of the movie palace.  My bearded seatmate is asleep in his studded jacket and nose ring, so I just accept one more mystery of the road.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
After reading this first paragraph, I want to know more about this particular encounter and more about the life experiences of the iconic Gloria Steinem.  This memoir is sure to spark lively book club discussion.
