Tuesday Teaser on Sunday

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. - Jorge Luis Borges

I was finally working my way through my Google Reader backlog yesterday, and came across a post from Anno about a book meme. I thought, "I can do that!" until I realized that I had no "current read" to use.


Without a book.

Not reading.

Seriously... something was wrong with the world. And, I decided that I'd clearly been working too hard because not having time to read is like not having time to breathe.

Thus, I made the decision to shut off the computer shortly before eight o'clock last night, grab a book from my keeper shelf and take a long, hot bath.

Therefore, I now have a "current read"!! I've also requested some books from the library and have determined I will never not have time to read again.

Now, moving on to the book meme (and I'm not really participating in the meme, but wanted to give the links so you folks could if you wanted):

It's Teaser Tuesdays, a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Everyone's invited to play along! Here are the 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!

  • Here is mine:

    "Well, they haven't exactly been advertising. And who thinks about their parents' sex lives, anyway?" -- Page 133 of "Crazy for You" by Jennifer Crusie


    Today we'll be stacking wood. Told you it was the chore that wouldn't go away. Yesterday, DH put up a new storm door on the house... and what should have been a two hour job ended up taking all day. He wasn't the happiest DH in the world by dinner time last night. *sigh*

    But, I look at the bright side: tomorrow is Monday!

    Even when I'm told not to read, I tend to sneak in a few pages. I need to visually see a book near me.

    Have a good Sunday.

    he he. I carry a bag with me that's got books in it.

    Umm... here's my addition:

    "I thought you'd be happy."
    Gage wasn't happy one damn bit. Adrianna kept information from him yet again. "I am."

    I carry a book with me from room to room, and in my purse when I leave the house. But, I know what you mean about not having time to read. Every now and then..... Glad you're making the time!

    I hope you had a great Sunday!
