Last Tuesday I was having a hard time figuring out what I was going to post when I came across this meme and since then I have decided to make it a pretty permanent feature. Diane @ Bibliophile By The Sea hosts this meme every Tuesday where you share the first chapter/paragraph of the book you are currently reading or are going to be reading next.
First Chapter/First Paragraph
When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home. I was wishing I looked like Paul Newman — he looks tough and I don’t — but I guess my own looks aren’t so bad. I have light brown, almost red hair and greenish-gray eyes. I wish they were more gray, because I hate most guys that have green eyes, but I have to be content with what I have. My hair is longer than a lot of boys wear theirs, squared off in back and long at the front and sides, but I am a greaser and most of my neighborhood rarely bothers to get a haircut. Besides, I look better with long hair.
This is my first time ever reading this book. I have seen the movie several times and love it, I just hope I feel the same way about the book. Have you read or watched The Outsiders? Did you like the book or movie more?
