Tuesday Teaser: "The Bond"-"Bottom of the 33rd"-"Crossing Lines"

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
  • 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.   

The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend ThemA mother gorilla, Binti Jua, with a baby on her back, was the first to reach the boy.  She seemed to have a purpose in mind.

From page 56 of The Bond--our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them by Wayne Pacelle

Bottom of the 33rd: Hope, Redemption, and Baseball's Longest Game"Give Howie a call down there and we'll count you when you call in.  See how many people we have still with us on this Easter Sunday morning, listening to Rochester Red Wing baseball here on XPXN."

In other words:  Is anyone out there?
From page 154 of  The Bottom of the 33rd:  Hope, Redemption, and Baseball's Longest Game by Dan Barry

Crossing Lines"It's just a personal decision. Accept it and move on." All I could think in my head was, Leave it to a hippie with a ponytail to stick up for a homo wearing lipstick.
From pg. 103 of Crossing Lines by Paul Volponi

  6. Interesting and amusing teasers.

  7. Hi Karen and Gerard,

    You have picked on three completely different, but equally insightful and emotional books this week.

    Not being into sport very much, I would probably discount the baseball book, although the lines were great.

    With the animal book, I guess you can be quite certain what you are going to be getting in terms of reading content.

    So, because the lines were intriguing and the full synopsis sounds pretty emotional and full-on stuff, I would probably choose 'Crossing Lines', as the book that I would most like to read from your selection.

    Thanks for sharing.
