Laughing Through Life on Tuesday

It is time to hop along with First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros blog hop, hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea. Come join the fun of sharing first chapters, first paragraphs of books that have grabbed your attention and you just had to add the book to your reading list.

This Tuesday I am sharing the first two paragraphs from the first chapter of Laughing through Life by author Connie Corcoran Wilson. The title of the first essay in this collection is "ESP: Exercise in Stress Points".


     "I have devised a point system similar to that scale used to tell when a person has too much stress in his or her life. My scale is designed to warn you when you have signed up for an exercise class that is too difficult for you.
     On the life stress scale, a marriage, divorce, new baby or death in the family might equal 100 points. On my exercise stress point scale, you are assigned Exercise Stress Points (ESP) to signal when you are in a world of hurt."

As a member of Premier Virtual Author Book Tours, I received a review copy of this book. Laughing through Life begins its virtual blog tour on November 28th. I will be posting my review of this book right here at Ruthi Reads! on December 6th. And, on December 7th, I will be posting an interview with the author, Connie Corcoran Wilson, as well as hosting a book giveaway.

We look forward to hearing you all Laughing Through Life!
