It feels like I was just starting out a month ago, with my first teaser from He Forgot To Say Goodbye by Benjamin Alire Saenz, on August 10, 2010. Ah yes, the good old days . . . and then there's my second teaser, and third, which I clearly remember posting. (I can't believe I formatted them like that.)
Yes. Right. You didn't stop by to listen to me reminisce, did you?
This weekly, bookish meme is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
The familiar Rules:
- 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!
This week, my teaser is from The Best of the Best Volume 2: 20 Years of the Best Short Science Fiction Novels, edited by Gardner Dozois.
"Oh no. Hemingway forgery. You figured out a way to make it legal. Go ahead. I'm all ears."
"See, you tell the publisher first off what it is, that you wrote it and then had it typed up to look authentic."
-p. 101 "The Hemingway Hoax" by Joe Haldeman
Got a teaser, or thoughts on the book you're reading? Feel free to leave them in the comments!
