Teaser Tuesdays!


Good morning and happy Tuesday! You know how this works - take your current read, open it to a random page and give us a couple of teaser sentences. No spoilers, please, and be sure to tell us what book, so we can run out and buy it.

This week, I am still slogging through 800 pages of Stone's Fall - interesting, but it hasn't really lent itself to teasers. But coming home from the latest leg of my trip, I found a pile of books waiting for me! I had to give them a once-over, didn't I? And I found this, from I Shudder...and other reactions to Life, Death and New Jersey by Paul Rudnick:

"I was, of course, thrilled beyond belief by John's tattoo, because I somehow imagined that it mad me tougher, as if I were now a Helll's Angel or an especially unrepentant serial killer on death row. I loved John even more because he never expected me to return the favor; he was being permanently inked with the name of a real wuss."

This one looks funny. And I could use a quick, funny read right now. Hmmm....

What's teasing YOU this week?

Psst: If you look at the post just before this one, you'll find a great book giveaway! Check it out!

That does sound like it may get you feeling a bit better. I would hate to be slogging through anything 800 pages.. stick a fork in it.

I love that teaser. The book sounds like it really would be a fun read. If you don't mind interrupting yourself, it might give your mind a bit of a break.
