3 Tuesday Teasers: 1 Romance and 2 Non-Fiction


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page (well, we cheat and choose specific ones)
  • 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   

Karen's:
"Yes, you can bunk with me. If we're really going to do this, I have only one request."
From Loc. 519 on Kindle of Anything You Ask by Lynn Kellan. (My review will be up tomorrow.)

Some who had been practicing witchcraft even brought their books and burned them in public. These books were worth 50,000 silver coins.
From Acts 19:19 of the Contemporary English Version of The Holy Bible.

Gerard's:

Meanwhile, Charlie's supervisor informed him that he would be put on indefinite paid leave, effective immediately. That didn't sound so bad, being paid not to work, until he sat home in his basement apartment, thinking, depressed, wondering if they'd come for him or if he should set it up so he could be a tragic suicide in jail, as he had after breaking into Michelle's apartment.
From page 50 of The Good Nurse--A True Story of Medicine, Madness, and Murder by Charles Graeber.

I hope you will check out a teaser from the book I wrote:  My Funny Dad, Harry

Happy Reading!

  3. Hmmm... how does one suicide in jail twice?

    I hate to see any book burned, let alone one so valuable.

    Now I want to know what the request is.

  4. Wonder what the request is...
    Love the snippet from Acts.
    Being paid not to work sounds like a dream job to me... lol
