Should Be Reading




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!
  • Teaser #1

    My words were Egyptian hieroglyphics before the discovery of the Rosetta stone; my words were wounded soldiers limping home, guns spent, from a lost battle; my words were dying fish, flipping hysterically as the net is opened and the pile spreads across the boat deck like a slippery mountain trying to become a prairie.

    Teaser #2

    Since we were each the eldest in our families, it fell on Joshua and me to keep track of all our younger brothers and sisters. It seemed that the easiest way to accomplish this was to tie them together, so we strung together , by height, my two brothers and Joshua's three brothers and two sisters. I tied the rope loosely around their necks so it would only choke them if they got out line.

    ~ Lamb: The Gospel According To Biff by Christopher Moore

    Teaser #3

    Sometimes if I'm watching the History Channel or the Discovery Channel or PBS or even one of the kids' channels --- when Zoe was little I'd end up spending half the day trying to pry goofy jingles out of my brain --- I learn about other cultures and other ways of life, and then I start thinking about my own place in the world and what makes sense and what doesn't.

    Hi, I found your blog via Teaser Tuesdays, I just finished The Art of Racing in the Rain and I could hardly put it down. :) How are you liking it?

    Think I liked your quote from the Gospel According to Biff best. May try one of Stein's books some day since I see he's on the NY Times bestseller list from time to time. Thanks & love your blog site, as well.

    I stumbled across it myself, I hadn't read any other books like it - with an animal point of view; so I thought I'd give it a chance, and I am so glad I did!
