Teaser Tuesdays (Feb.23)

February 23, 2010

teasertuesdays31 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!

My Teasers:

“It’s like climbing a tall ladder and focusing on the next step rather than gawking up at the top. There may be many more steps to go, but you can take comfort that you’re making real progress in the right direction.”

~ p.143, “Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard” by Chip & Dan Heath

 

 

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

  50. The Cone-Gatherers by Robin Perkins is a beautiful book; Perkins is an extraordinary writer and this is one of the best books I’ve read this year.

    http://hopeseguin2010.wordpress.com/2010/02/23/teaser-tuesday-7/

    • Whoops! the author of Robin JENKINS – not Perkins . . . a slip of the fingers . . .

      • Well . . .
        the author of THE CONE-GATHERS is Robin Jenkins . . .not Perkins

        Not my morning for the brain telling the fingers what to type . . .
