Teaser Tuesdays (June 17)

June 17, 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!

McDonaldMisner_10WaysToStayBrokeForeverMy Teasers:

“It’s a good question, and one that many people aren’t forced to consider — until it’s too late. Check out the top ways you can keep the charade going and stay broke!”

~ p. 1, “10 Ways to Stay Broke…Forever!” by Laura J. McDonald & Susan L. Misner
(I just bought this book, and it’s great, so far!)

 

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

  5. I would rather get a way to make sure my bank-account is always full ;) Great teaser MizB!

    Here’s my Teaser Tuesday post for today.

    Happy reading!

    • The title is actually the OPPOSITE of what’s inside… it’s just a clever way to get you to pick it up. The book is actually about learning how NOT to stay broke…forever. ;)

  6. You always find such interesting teasers. Here is my Tuesday Teaser

  7. I’m really curious now. Why would a book promote the charade of being broke? Or am I missing something?

    My teaser is from a book called The Wonderbox, about how history can help us live a more fulfilling life: http://allsortsofbooks.blogspot.jp/2014/06/teaser-tuesday-wonder-box-by-roman.html

  11. I think I have the staying broke part down. I need the other part, how to get out of it. Here’s Mine

    • Precisely! And that’s why I bought this book. ;)

  17. Interesting take! Is this satire….as in, if you don’t want to be broke quit doing this stuff? Sounds like a teachable moment or two!
    Today I’m featuring The From-Aways by CJ Hauser

    http://mytime2read.blogspot.com/2014/06/tuesday-memes-from-aways.html

  18. I wonder what the question is? Maybe “what would you lose if you missed one paycheck? What if you missed two?”

  27. autumnmiss permalink

    i apologise for the incorrect date on my post above it is todays post but the link i had of yours was April, senior moment menat i copied the date without thinking. Sorry!

  28. Everyone could probably use some financial advice. My teaser isn’t about that at all though! Here it is: http://blog.cseditorial.com/2014/06/teaser-tuesdays-constellation-of-vital.html

  29. Sounds like a humorous fun read. :)
    My TT

  30. Mine is super depressing today…this book is driving me nuts. http://ilayreading.wordpress.com/2014/06/17/teaser-tuesday-6172014/

    • MizB permalink

      Wow. That teaser is very depressing! If the whole book is more of the same, that would NOT be one I’d enjoy! LOL

      If you aren’t liking it, why not set it aside? Life’s too short to read stuff that isn’t your cup of tea! ;)

  31. I think I would rather not stay broke forever! Hahaa, sounds like a very interesting book! Thanks for sharing.

    Here’s my teasers at Bookmunchies (:

  32. This makes me think of the English nobility during the Regency era. Keeping up appearances made the difference between being able to recoup your losses and falling into the lower classes.

  33. Interesting title for sure! Great teaser. Here is my TT http://cynthiastacey.com/2014/06/17/teaser-tuesday-june-17/

    • MizB permalink

      Ooo, cool! That book is on my TBR list! :D

  36. Well, that sounds interesting. Here’s my teaser: http://melinmidlothian.blogspot.com/2014/06/teaser-tuesdays.html

  37. Hi MizB,

    An interesting view on life and I can see the validity of keeping money in the bank as a stabilising factor in case of a rainy day. However the idea of living on the edge all the time, would stress me out no end! I guess I just want my cake and eat it … but then, don’t we all!!

    Here are my teasers for this week, they are taken from ‘Buried A Man I Hated There’ by Adam Pepper.

    http://www.fiction-books.biz/weekly-memes/teaser-tuesdays/buried-a-man-i-hated-there-by-adam-pepper-2/

    Thanks for hosting and enjoy the rest of the week,

    Yvonne.

    • MizB permalink

      Yes, I think we do!

      I’m constantly broke, so I bought this book to learn how to be better with my money — so that I do have savings to fall back on, etc. ;)

      Thanks for your thoughts! :D

  38. I’m guessing that one of the best ways to stay broke is to take your credit card balances to the limit! Good Teaser.
    My Teaser is from MAJOR PETTIGREW’S LAST STAND.

  39. Happy Tuesday! My teaser is from the Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake.
