Tuesday Teaser

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

 I have 2 teasers today!   I just finished the book 600 Hours of Edward by Craig Lancaster. This book is a must read, I can't wait to post the review.

"On a Tuesday morning, when most of the rest of Billings is at work, my shopping goes easily: ground beef, spaghetti sauce, Banquet meals, DiGiorno's pizza (supreme this week), 12-pack of Diet Dr. Pepper, corn flakes, milk and ice cream.  The self-checkout stand is a breeze, and soon I'm back in the 1997 Toyota Camry, right -turning my way home." - Page 94.

The other teaser comes from Giv: The Story of a Dog and America by Boston Teran.

"This is a great soul fallen on hard times.  The worst was not the beatings, or the physical hunger. He has known both...."

A beautifully written book, I'm enjoying it so far.

Do you have a teaser today?


vote it up!

This looks fun! My teaser is from Ground Zero by F. Paul Wilson...

"I feel him!" she cried.
The whole place was staring at her now. Someone at the bar said, "Hey, you can feel me too! Anytime you want."

T said...

Er, maybe I should be doing this on *my* blog. D'oh!

And thanks Missy B- I'm enjoying Giv so far and you'll definitely need to read 600 Hours!

Eek, I wouldn't want to eat with that first person; none of what he or she bought sounds appealing to me, other than the ice cream!

I'm sorry my teaser didn't work for you. I've now uploaded a smaller pic, so hopefully I've fixed the problem.
