Teaser Tuesday


TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!


  • Here are my "teaser" sentences, from Alaska by James Michener:

    "Varnak and Tevuk would hear none of this, for although they had a very old woman to care for, she was so precious to them that they would starve themselves rather than deprive her....'Others say, Let the old ones die', he whispered to his wife one night, 'but I have no mind to do so'. "

    This is quite an interesting novel - and based on its size, I might be reading it for months! =)

    Yes, this is a fat novel but well worth it.

    I love fat novels, but my neck and shoulders don't!

    Sounds dramatic!

    And I guess that would be yet another benefit of getting a Kindle -- no more heavy lifting of books. (Can you tell I'm trying to justify buying one?)

    Sounds like a weighty read but well worth the effort.
