Teaser Tuesday 2/23

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!
  • Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!
From On Writing by Stephen King:
I'm convinced that fear is at the root of most bad writing. If one is writing for one's own pleasure, that fear may be mild - timidity is the word I've used here.
I am really enjoying this book so far, and I am by no means a King fan.

  1. Sounds like an interesting book :-) I keep thinking about picking up King's new book "Under the Dome" but it is soooo massive!
    Here's mine.

  2. I've never read anything by Stephen King, but I may make an exception in this case.

  6. I hear this is a great book. I am one of the very few people who has never read a S.K. book, but I don't think this one would scare me. :))

    Are you reading it for the Bibliophilic Books Challenge?
