Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros sharing the first paragraph or two of a book that I’m reading or plan to read soon

Feel free to join in by posting your own FCFPTI and linking below

What We Keep: 150 People Share the One Object that Brings Them Joy, Magic, and Meaning by Bill Shapiro

Let’s Start Here

In this book, you will find the story of a bottle opener that a drug-dealing grandmother gave to her grandson. The strange pincushion that foreshadowed a future writer’s wanderings. The bullet a soldier would have used to kill himself had his mission gone south. The notebook sketch that sparked a hit movie.

What you won’t find is the story of the locket that, in small and subtle ways, led to the idea for the book itself.
