Here's how to play:
- Grab your current read.*
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us two (2)** "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
- You also need to share the title of the book that you're getting your teaser from...that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
- Please avoid spoilers!
**I will probably cheat sometimes, depending on how long it takes to finish the thought within those line parameters. Teasers should still make sense!
Here's a teaser from my current read, The Forever War, by Dexter Filkins:
"In an odd but real way, my five-mile runs up Abu Nawas Street made me wonder what the war in Iraq was about. All day long reporting in the country I encountered hostility and chaos, which was intense and growing and real. And yet at night when I hit the streets, in the fall of 2003, I could not find a trace of it."
Wow, I don't know about you, but if I wasn't already reading it, I'd be totally roped in.
Do this on your own blog, and leave a link in the comments here...or just leave a comment with your own teasers and titles! Interactive and educational. Ta da!
