Teaser Tuesdays (June 3)

June 3, 2014

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!

“For example, an introvert may need time alone following a public lecture, and an extrovert may need to party with a large group of friends after an intensive solo study session. Little calls this period of replenishing our energies a “restorative niche”.”

~ p. 171, “Choose the Life You Want” by Tal Ben-Shahar, Ph.D.

 

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

  1. Sounds good, Miz B! It makes me think of The Secret in a way. It’s all in the way we think :)

    Here’s my Teaser Tuesday post for today.

    Happy reading.

  2. Was just talking about introverts vs extroverts this weekend. Nice teaser!

    Glad you got this link up back again, I missed it! We have four this week: http://ourstack.blogspot.com/2014/06/tuesday-teasers-four-today.html

  7. An Introvert might also need plenty of alone time prior to the lecture to work herself up.

    Here’s my TT from “Misery” by Stephen King: http://pubwrite.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/teaser-tuesday-misery/

  8. I love reading about intro/extroverts. As an introvert I find extroverts fascinating people.

  9. I understand this concept well. Everyone needs balance in their life, even in everyday tasks.

    I’m playing today at Beth Fish Reads with a giveaway.

    Here’s my teaser.

  12. Great teaser! In my own family, we have both extremes (extrovert and introvert) and some in the middle of that spectrum and it’s fascinating – and helpful! – to understand how we react differently to situations.

    My teaser for this week: http://justasecondblog.blogspot.com/2014/06/teaser-tuesdays-june-3-2014.html

  13. Love this teaser! Dani’s an extrovert, while I’m an introvert. We balance each other out. :) Here’s our teasers http://covergirlsdj.blogspot.com/2014/06/teaser-tuesday.html ~Jax

  14. The title sounds really good and the teaser rings true! I’m going to have to take a note of this book:

    My teaser is from The Troubleshooter by Bard Constantine: http://allsortsofbooks.blogspot.jp/2014/06/teaser-tuesday-troubleshooter-by-bard.html

  15. Very true, that teaser :-)

    Here’s mine

  16. I like those two word, “restorative niche.” Enjoyed your Teaser.

  17. Ahhh. Those words are true. Kinda like batteries in need of charging… :) Here’s my teaser for this week (it’s so nice to be back posting a TT again): http://www.curiosakat.com/teaser-tuesdays-12-entropia-a-collection-of-unusually-rare-stamps-by-christian-lorenz-scheurer/

  18. It makes sense. Everyone needs to recharge. You can check out our teaser here – http://www.pageturnersblog.com/2014/06/teaser-tuesday-city-of-heavenly-fire.html

    I’d probably tend more towards the introvert side of things. Huge crowds (think WalMart on Black Friday) are not my style.

    My teaser is from “Thread End”.

  25. Good label for it! Here’s mine: “KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE”

  26. I do love your blog :) I have ‘borrowed’ the Musing Mondays, Teaser Tuesdays and WWW Wed idea, and made versions of it in my own language (Portuguese) – of course I have quoted you (I’m at http://oslivrosdosprazeres.blogspot.com.br/) and https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2744440-leticia. However, it’s easy to realize how open to interpretation things are when you see my own teasers are dozens of quotations instead of one :P

  27. Sounds like this is a guide to knowing yourself and your needs.
    My Teaser is from SINFUL FOLK.

  28. I can relate to the introvert! Here’s my teaser for the week. Cheers

  29. So true, time to recharge the batteries (however you do that) is essential.

    My teaser http://gregsbookhaven.blogspot.com/2014/06/teaser-tuesday-24.html

  30. I need that “restorative niche” after spending hours with family, lol. My teaser: East of Eden

  31. I wouldn’t consider myself an introvert but I do feel the need for some alone time after any big social event! Sometimes there’s just too many people! Here’s my teaser:

  32. Good reminder that we all have our own ways that are right for us.

    My teaser is from an interesting book about a tiny slice of history: http://www.rosecityreader.com/2014/06/teaser-tuesday-to-win-indian-heart.html

  33. Sounds like an interesting read!
