Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  • I am in such a reading slump at the moment, I was very nearly going to have to find a teaser from the same book as last week. Luckily, I read the last few pages at lunchtime. I don't normally read at lunch time because I am always a bit worried about losing track of time!

    My teaser this week comes from the book I started on the train trip home, Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol (page 348):

    On Sato's command, the pilot performed a "touch hover" on the roof of the tallest building around - the renowned One Franklin Square - a towering and prestigious office building with two gold spires on top. The maneuver was illegal, of course, but the chopper was there only a few seconds, and its skids barely touched the gravel rooftop.

    Now if only I knew who Sato was!

    I have only finished two books so far this month - unheard of for me. Normally I read 13 or 14 books, if not more, every month, but I think it is fair to say that it is not going to be anywhere near that many this month.


    1. I hear great things about this book. Can't wait to read your opinion.

      I'm in a reading slump, too. Plenty of books around, but no time / motivation to read.

    2. I could tell you, but then you might kill me :)

      I just finished this book and I loved it. My review is posted. If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

    3. Oh good maybe I can catch up to your books read ;) Just kidding. I hope your reading slump is over soon. And, looking forward to your review of this one. I'm not really a Dan Brown fan but I always give authors a second or third chance anyway.

    4. Good teaser.This one's on my list, but it'll probably take me a while to get around to it.

    5. Great teaser Marg! You're making me want to know who Sato is too! Looking forward to your review of this.

    6. Seems like a lot of us are in some sort of slump right now. Nice to see I'm not the only one.

      I hope this makes your day an even better one: http://allbookedup-elena.blogspot.com/2009/10/newly-awarded.html
      One nice award waiting for you

    7. I really want to read this book!

    8. Well, don't feel bad. My average in a good month is actually not more than 2-3 books. Although, this month has been rather good so far, because a lot of what I've read has been YA, and that sort of reads way faster than a thick classic I guess (not that I read many of those, though)
