Teaser Tuesday

It is time again for Teaser Tuesday.  It is hosted by MizB at Should be Reading.  The rules are simple:

  • 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 teaser is taken from an arc from Netgalley.  So, the wording of this teaser could be changed before publication.  It is scheduled to be release in April  2011.  The Book is the "Betrayal of Maggie Blair" by Elizabeth Laird.  It is on my kindle, so I do not have a page number.

    "Stupid old Tam. Daft old man.  You think you can get around Virtue, but you can't."


    1. That's certainly an interesting teaser.

    2. Here is my teaser from Nature's Secret Messages: Hidden in Plain Sight by Elaine Wilkes (Page 3):

      "We lie in the lap of immense intelligence." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

      Stop. Look. Listen. My kindergarten teacher taught me that. I remember carefully lining up the tips of my patent-leather shoes exactly at the edge of the curb and stopping–then carefully looking to my right and left, quiet and aware, listening for any clues. Feeling that it was safe to proceed, I'd grasp my classmate's hand, jump off the curb, and happily venture into unknown territories on the other side of the street.

      Now I barely glance from side to side as I hurry on my way.

      What happened? Where did that wide-open feeling of awareness go? In the rush of adulthood, it seems to vanish, but what would happen if we simply stopped, looked and listened…even as busy adults?

      As a learning addict, I've hunted for insights through countless books, seminars, experts, masters and more. Eventually, I realized that my kindergarten teacher had it right from the beginning, long before I started my quest. Who knew that she was so profound?

    3. I thought about requesting this book from NetGalley too. It sounds really good.
