Teaser Tuesday

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 really, really wanted to lose awareness of the here and now. The best way for me to do that was bury myself in a book.”

2011 E Book Challenge

I never thought I’d be much of an e book reader but then I had kids and discovered that kids steal bookmarks, like to pretend to read books themselves, spill things, rip things, and on and on. All of a sudden I understood the appeal of the ereader. I don’t actually own an ereader but I have an Ipod touch with the kindle app, barnes and noble app, ibook, and stanza installed on it.

I’ve already finished two books.

  1. Janet Evanovich’s Sizzling Sixteen
  2. Charlaine Harris’s Dead Until Dark
