Teaser Tuesdays: “FITlosophy” (Mar.26)

March 26, 2013

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!

SharnyJulius_FITlosophy1My Teasers:

“While everybody had accepted him as fat, Geoff held onto his internal ‘knowing’ that he was an athlete. He was not a fat man needing to lose weight; he was an athlete who had let himself go.”

~ p.44, “FITlosophy 1” by SharnyandJulius™ {finished this yesterday – read my review}


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! :D

    Interesting quote and approach… I kind of like it:)

    Here’s my teaser for this week: http://tfwalsh.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/teaser-tuesday-the-hunt/

  2. Have actually heard of this one, but not much about it. My teaser: The Giver and Gathering Blue

  3. Very motivational and inspiring quote. Just because you’re a big person, you shouldn’t let your size get to you.

    Come stop by my teaser which is from Breaking Point (Article 5 #2) by Kristen Simmons: http://dream-wish-live.blogspot.com/2013/03/teaser-tuesdays_25.html

  5. That’s a nicer way of thinking about it. I like that. Here’s my teaser:

  8. I like this one. I usually go with “I’m in shape, rounds a shape.” Definitely like this one waay better.

  9. Hi MizB,

    Great lines this week … I am sure that in the overall context of the book, I shouldn’t be getting quite so excited about the ethos of those lines … but they certainly sound good to me!!

    My teaser lines for this week, are here …
