- Fizzy Thoughts: Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your "teaser" from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.
  • Please avoid spoilers!

"Showed him some of my fiction too, all robberies and drug deals and Fuck you, Nando, and BLAU! BLAU! BLAU! He gave me four pages of comments for an eight-page story."

From The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, by Junot Diaz

Here's a teaser from Size 12 Is Not Fat by Meg Cabot

"No one else is around, but there's still a disagreeable amount of tension in the room."

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
