Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - August 6th



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...


Bum, A Dog That Chose San Diego As Home

A steamship from San Francisco, the Santa Rosa, arrived in San Diego, and a stowaway disembarked along with some of the other passengers. It was a dog described as a St. Bernard-Spaniel mix that had the good sense to decide that San Diego looked like a good place to settle down.

  8. This sounds like a feel-good book that I'd love. I've heard of dogs who took long journeys to find their owners but never one who stowed away on a boat!
    Here's my Teaser: Tougher Than the Rest
