- Fizzy Thoughts: Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

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!

"Yeah. I'm a big believer in random capitalization. The rules of capitalization are so unfair to words in the middle."

from Paper Towns, by John Green

Great teaser! My 6-yr-old writes her 3s Ss and Zs backwards, so she would support mirror-image writing in addition to random capitalization :)

Oh that sounds funny...but how true it is! Thanks for the teaser.

You just can't lose with a John Green teaser!

Made me laugh. I read the book months ago, and I can still (almost) picture what's going on. Such is the power of John Green. :)

Hope you're enjoying the book...

Karen H. said...

YES. I agree WITH that statement.

I loved it when I read it for the first time and I love it again as your teaser!!! Awesome book!

What the teaser is talking about here - I loved it. This is exactly what I mean when I say that Green does a fantastic job at creating realistic characters. Just the addition of this randomly odd trait creates such a human-like feel.

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
