First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by Sea. It lets us share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon.
After being disappointed with the previous book I read, I hope that what I'm picking right now is the right choice. I really feel the need for some good book.
What I am reading now:

First the colours.
Then the humans.
That's usually how I see things.
Or at least, how I try.
Here is a small fact: You are going to die.
I am in all truthfulness attempting to be cheerful about this whole topic, though most people find themselves hindered in believing me, no matter my protestations. Please, trust me. I most definitely can be cheerful. I can be amiable. Agreeable. Affable. And that's only the As. Just don't ask me to be nice. Nice has nothing to do with me.
The fire was nothing now but a funeral of smoke, dead and dying, simultaneously: On this particular morning, there were also voices.
~p. 239, "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak.
Wow, I really like the first paragraph. What makes this book look more interesting to me that it is narrated by Death :]
Please share with me your Teaser Tuesdays or First Chapter First Paragraph on the comment box so I can visit your blog too :)
