Teaser Tuesdays (May 31)

May 31, 2011

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:

“While normal people continue to add items to their to-do list, maybe you should do something weird instead: start a to-don’t list. Just this year alone, I’ve dropped seven things that I normally do to make room for those important things I thought I didn’t have time to do.”

~ p.34, “Weird: Because Normal Isn’t Working” by Craig Groeschel




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

  98. I LIKE that idea! And I’m weird, so it fits! Hmmm .. what things can I drop? :) Thanks for sharing! My teaser is here: http://www.knittingandsundries.com/2011/05/teaser-tuesdays-may-31-2011.html
