Teaser Tuesdays (Nov.15)

November 14, 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:

“Keep in mind that only the information that is actually applied will bring about the transformation we desire. That’s the hard part for us all!”

  1. Very interesting! Makes me wonder what all they are talking about. Transformations can be tough to get used to when we force them though!

    My teaser this week is from Two-Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt:

  4. Pretty basic–naturally we have to apply what we learn or there is no transformation.

    Here’s ours–3 this week: http://ourstack.blogspot.com/2011/11/teaser-tuesdays-is-weekly-bookish-meme.html

  54. Boy is that teaser true. I am trying to make some lifestyle changes and it is hard to apply what I need to do. Here is my teaser:

    http://mixedbookbag.blogspot.com/2011/11/tuesday-teaser-november-15-2011.html

  55. Happy Tuesday everyone!

    You can find my teaser here!

  56. That is the hard part!

    Here is my teaser.

  57. I like your teaser. It’s very true. Actual application of things we learn in our lives is the only way to change. Here’s my TT: http://www.2readornot2read.com/2011/11/teaser-tuesday-november-15-2011.html

  58. We take in information and advice all the time, but I like the point made in this teaser – only the information that you apply will actually change anything. Just hearing it won’t do a thing. Great teaser. If you get a chance, mine is here.

  59. I’m working on some self-transformations this month too, must be something in the air!

    My entrant is http://bookbabie.com/2011/11/15/love-rules/

  69. That definitely is the hard part!

    My teaser of Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey is here: http://melaniesmusings.net/teaser-tuesday-jekel-loves-hyde/

  70. That is always the hardest part!

    My Teaser Tuesday

  71. Definitely true about most self-help books – we may read them thinking, “I already know all of this stuff”, but many of us aren’t actively using that knowledge, or we wouldn’t be picking up another self-help book! Great teaser!

    Mine is on “A Great and Terrible Beauty” by Libba Bray: http://www.knittingandsundries.com/2011/11/teaser-tuesdays-november-15-2011.html

  72. Very thoughtful teaser today! Mine is here. Happy Tuesday!

  73. The Word Jar permalink

    I like this teaser. Reminiscent of “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” You have to change what you do (apply your new knowledge) to transform yourself.

    Here’s my teaser for The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson:

    Much later, on the edge of sleep, I felt Jamie’s arm around my waist, and felt his breath warm against my neck. “Does it ever stop? The wanting you?”

    Diana Gabaldon ~ Outlander

  85. Your teaser is very true. I need to get back to some lifestyle changes and apply them regularly to see some changes in my life :)
