Teaser Tuesday 10.26.10

Teaser Tuesdays is an interesting and fun book-related meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Be prepared to add several new books to your TBR list! I do every week!

My Teaser:

"I have no excuse for my own tears. In the way of women my age, I increasingly count my blessings aloud, as though if other people acknowledge them they'll be enough: three wonderful children, a long and happy marriage, good home, pleasurable work. And if below the surface I sense that one child is poised to flee and another is miserable, that my husband and I trade public pleasantries and private minutiae, that my work depends on the labor of men who think I'm cheating them-none of that is to be dwelled on."

from Every Last One by Anna Quindlen (p.83)

Anyone can play along! If you'd like to participate, Just do the following:
*Grab your current read
*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. (I used 3 this week!)
*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!

*And, finally, don't forget to link your post to MizB's at Should Be Reading. If you don't have a blog, simply share your "teasers" in a comment.

  5. I have no excuse for my own tears, this sentence could be by me:DVery personal and kind of desperate teaser.

  6. I've read excellent reviews of this book but not got round to reading it yet.
    Great teaser and a nice reminder.

  7. Wow, that's pretty deep! I have yet to read a Quindlen book and I've heard good things about this one! Thanks for visiting my teaser!

  8. That is a great teaser. I tried to read this book awhile back and just couldn't get into it. I hope that you're enjoying it. Happy Reading!

  9. Hope you are enjoying this one. It was not a favorite for me.

  10. Interesting teaser. I've tried to read Anna Quindlen several times, but her books are just a little too intense for me. But this one has certainly had great reviews - hope you enjoy it.

  11. "The port's strategic location had served the British military. Now its duty-free status made it the place to both shop and find one's next ship. Aden was gateway to Africa; from Africa it was gateway to Europe. To Sister Mary Joseph Praise it looked like the gateway to hell." from CUTTING FOR STONE, by Abraham Verghese.
    I'm totally loving this book -- beautifully written.
