Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesday - August 27th
Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?
If you'd like to play along on Teaser Tuesdays, just click the button above.
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! (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 I'm reading...
From the e-book...
My boss has gotten easier to handle since I realized he's a magpie.
I don't mean that literally. Literally, he's a consulting detective for the San Francisco, PD, a man who has solved hundreds of impossible cases, usually with me at his side keeping him calm and handing him antiseptic wipes.
I mean that he's distracted by shiny objects - only in his case the objects are odd numbers and germs and dirt and a hundred major phobias. Exactly one hundred. There's a list in a binder, centered on the coffee table. Whenever a new phobia pops up, he has to either eliminate one of the old ones or, more often, combine a couple.
