Teaser Tuesdays

“In these days of junk TV, short attention spans and easy-to-digest soundbites, it seemed that the book, the noble device to which Bowden and I had devoted much of our lives, was being marginalized into just another human story-telling experience also-ran, along with the epic poem, Greek theater, Jackanory, Beta and Tarzanagrams.
– Page 27 of Thursday Next: First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde –


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 read the first in this series and I really do need to get back to it. Nice teaser.

      I did the same thing. I read the first book probably 5 years ago now and I never got to the other. But then everyone else seemed to be reading them so I jumped on the bandwagon. I think they get better the deeper into the series you get.
