Teaser #1

Melchi carried box after box of books from the supply room and arranged them on the overflowing bookstore shelves. The few minutes he had allowed the Booklady to touch his hair could well cost him his life. Worse. The life of another.

Ooo, "Shade" sounds like it'd be really interesting!

I love how you put the three books in a row at the bottom of your post with a "Read More" button! Very cool! :D

Isn't it? Even though I'm not even halfway through Inkheart yet, I love it. The writing is just lovely.

Teasers #1 & #3 definitely intrigue me! Especially #3, I don't know why but it makes me want to laugh a little. :p

One of these days I would like to read The Liar's Club. Great teasers, by the way. This is my first time participating and they have all been so tempting.
