Teaser Tuesday - April 20, 2010

Don't forget to post your teaser in the comments. We want to know what you are reading!

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!

Shanda's Teaser:

"You don't have to consume junk food around the clock to put on weight. There are certain foods that are just too darn delish and tempting to resist, and the truth is you probably give in to them just a little more often than you admit to yourself."

Cook Yourself Thin: Skinny Meals you Can Make in Minutes, page 29

Sheila's Teaser:

"If you have time to correspond with me, could you answer several questions? Three in fact. Why did a roast pig dinner have to be kept a secret? How could a pig cause you to begin a literary society? And, most pressing of all, what is a potato peel pie-and why is it included in your society's name?"

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, page 12

Hillary's Teaser:

"Chances are, photographs are the reason you jumped into scrapbooking in the first place. you wanted to do something with that growing pile of photos from your wedding, family vacations, birthdays, and other significant life events."

The Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker by Wendy Smedley, page 35

Mindy's Teaser:

"The boy swooped to an easy midair stop, hovering a few feet above the men's heads. He looked to be twelve or thirteen years old; he had red hair, and freckles still visible in his deeply tanned face... and which the men could now see was what looked like a tiny winged woman."

Peter and the Sword of Mercy by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, page 39
