August 24, 2009

teaser-tuesday

  • 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!


    “‘Your sitzpinkling disgusts me,’ Hassan said, but he gave the Hearse some extra gas and shot past the exit.” An Abundance of Katherines by John Green p.25

    I have been told that I really should read this author. One day!

    I guess I need to know what sitzpinkling means.

    I definitely own this book, but I haven’t picked it up yet. I read “Paper Towns” and loved it! I hope that you are enjoying your read so far.

    Heh. I loved this book very much when I read it. I can picture exactly that moment, too. I hope you enjoy the rest of it!

    I hope you are enjoying it. I wasn’t a big fan. Great teaser though!
    Here’s mine.

    I’m looking forward to your review. I haven’t decided if I want to read this yet or not. . .

    I wonder what’s sitzpinkling is… 🙂

    I think the footnote about “sitzpinkling” is critical to understanding this tease (as were most of the footnotes Green put throughout). A good book and a good tease… thanks for posting!

      Hahaha I know and I had it in there but it’s almost funnier without it. I felt like I was over explaining myself if I went back to the page where it explains which was like on page 3. 🙂

    Sitzpinkling? I keep hearing good things about John Green, so guess I’m going to have to go get some of his books and catch up! Thanks for the great teaser! 🙂

    What an awesome teaser, I have Paper Towns on my bookshelf unread, should pick it up soon!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Love John Green, have yet to get to this one!

    Great teaser. I have no idea what that word means, but the fact that someone is driving a hearse (and missing an exit?!) makes me smile. Good choice!
