Teaser Tuesdays: 3 Today



Gerard's:

My heartbeat gradually slowed down after ten of the worst seconds in Sally's and my life.
     A few minutes later we were all having lunch together, laughing with Allyson about her flying grab of the leash.
 From page 62 of Chaser--Unlocking the Genius of the Dog Who Knows a Thousand Words by John W. Pilley.  (My review will be up tomorrow)

No matter what the misadventure--wrecking the car ( a Thornhill family tradition), stealing pills from Amanda's cache, getting caught in the TV room in flagrante delicto--the best defense was to pretend it hadn't happened.  Or lie about it.
From page 29 of Lies You Wanted to Hear by James Whitfield Thomson.

The brain is like other organs and works better when the body is healthy.  Exercising the body regularly appears to help ward off Alzheimer's disease, as do reducing body weight, lowering blood pressure, and eating a more healthful diet.

From page 21 of BRAIN THE COMPLETE MIND, How it Develops, How it Works, and How to Keep it Sharp by Michael S. Sweeney

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.   

Happy Reading!
