Bread Alone - Judith Ryan Hendricks
MY BOOK BEGINNING
I stand up, unsteady. Walk downstairs. Carefully. Holding the railing. Into the kitchen. The bread machine. How can such a small machine make such a big noise? The beeps are synchronized to the throbbing in my temples. I hit the button. The beeping stops and the lid swings open, releasing a cloud of scent. I wheel around and vomit into the sink. I turn on the water, rinse our my mouth, stand panting, gripping the cold edge of the slate countertop. Then I remember. David.
I lift out the still warm loaf, set it on the maple butcher block, a perfect brown cube of bread.
This is the second paragraph of page 1. I think this book was going to get read, but the last line did the trick for me. Why is she making bread when she's passed out in her bed? Sorry that was the first paragraph.
MY FRIDAY 56
I pick it up. It looks fragile, but it's surprisingly heavy. The heft of it in my hand merges with the sight of my belongings strewn around the porch like trash, and ignites a sudden fury in my brain. I give a roundhouse windup and heave the lamp straight into the front window.
BOOK BLOGGER QUESTION:
Where do you keep your passwords for all of your different sites?
I have a folder made for all my online sites with names and passwords on my computer. The only bad thing about that is if my computer crashes, which it has numerous times, I can't get to my passwords. So I guess I need to go the old fashioned way and put them on paper somewhere.
This is also for my Full House Reading Challenge.
