First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros: In Praise of Difficult Women

Happy New Year!

Today I am participating in First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, which is all about “sharing the first paragraph or two of a book that I’m reading or plan to read soon.” FCFPTI is hosted by I’d Rather Be at the Beach and takes place every Tuesday. I’m currently reading In Praise of Difficult Women: Life Lessons From 29 Heroines Who Dared to Break the Rules by Karen Karbo.

Chapter 1: J. K. Rowling: Feisty

Given her monumental literary success, happy marriage to a loving Scottish doctor, three beautiful children, posh residences scattered around the UK, blond English rose beauty, and ability to rock dangly earrings, there is no reason on Earth for J. K. Rowling to be difficult. And yet she is. Tetchy on Twitter, out and proud about her progressive politics, Jo (as she calls herself) isn’t interested in remaining imprisoned by her role as creator of one of the most beloved fictional universes in literary history. Instead, she stays in the fray, enjoys stirring things up.

  • Today I had the chance to go with a friend and visit Central Library, the main branch of the Los Angeles Public Library. It is amazing! Strongly recommend a visit if you’re ever in the LA area. There are more pictures and a little info about my trip on my blog. Link in bio.

What’s your favorite library?

  • Had the chance to check out Amazon Books today. Interestingly, they have two prices for everything: regular price or prime member price. I left with two books of poetry.

Strangely,nearly everyone at this mall was wearing all black but me.
