Teaser Tuesdays (Mar.6)

March 6, 2012

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:

“Sure enough, there was a tube. The operator said, ‘Sir, don’t panic, but one of your kidneys has been harvested’.”
~ pg.4, “Made to Stickby Chip Heath & Dan Heath

  20. HI MizB,

    I couldn’t read any further than your teaser lines with this one …. too close to home …. My sister-in-law has had kidney failure for 20 years and survived 2 transplants, one of which was a live donor transplant from her husband …. see what I mean!!

    I did check the book out though and it is certainly going to make for some strange reading, although you may get a few laughs along the way.

    Enjoy and have a good week.

  21. Oh jeez, that’s scary. Creepy doctors always make me squirm!

    My Teaser
