Tuesday Teasers: Three Non-Fiction Ones Today

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.   

When I was old enough to play her, Mom didn't take it easy on me, either--she'd hit that ball right down my throat.
"See," she'd say. "If your own mother can do that, imagine what others will do to you."
From page 17 of The Outsider, a Memoir by Jimmy Connors.

He said things like, "Dad does this better," and "Dad would never do that," and "I wish Dad was here." But I kept my eyes forward and never let on that I was hurt.
From page 44 of Dinner With the Smileys--One Military Family, One Year of Heroes, and Lessons for a Lifetime by Sarah Smiley.

When the jailor woke up and saw that the doors were open, he thought that the prisoners had escaped.  He pulled out his sword and was about to kill himself.
From Acts 16:27 of The Holy Bible, Contemporary English Version.

Happy Reading!


  1. I'm interested in the Jimmy Connors book. Yikes. What a mother.

  2. Awww...that teaser from Dinner With the Smileys is so sad :(

  3. Those teasers are really good and I hope you guys are enjoying your reads.

    Thanks for sharing and thanks for stopping by my TT earlier. Oh, and just to clear all the confusion and doubts, the guy in my teaser isn't pregnant! The two friends are just joking! Anyways, I hope it made you laugh. :P

    Have a great week ahead!

  4. Great teasers! Paul and Silas delivered from jail is a favorite passage of mine. My teaser comes from Spring Fever by P.G. Wodehouse.

  5. I love them all. I've a garden shed out by our pond and adore to possess my morning coffee out there listening to character.

  6. Someday soon, I will sit down and read the Bible. Thanks for stopping by on my blog!

  7. Great teasers! Also, I love that you have the newest David Sedaris book included in your header. I think he's a scream!


Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
