Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - September 23rd

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 planning to start reading...

Shaping up at my age can be murder. My Wagoneer station wagon, Albatross, chugged toward Fit and Firm Health Club. Just thinking about trying to operate the machines packed inside that club made me shudder. I'm mechanically inept. My condition may be genetic.

Before anyone figured out it was me who wrote the "Stay Young With Aggie" column, I had to get in shape. Once I decided to ditch banking in Chicago and move to San Antonio to start over, I was past thirty, overweight, devoid of muscle tone and terrified by the prospect of middle age. Naturally, my readers must never know these things.

What do you think? Would you continue reading?


  1. I don't know if I'd keep reading, but I know the feeling, LOL. Mine: Lolita by Nabokov

  2. I like the intro and think this sounds fun. enjoy Yvonne.

  3. I like the intro and think I'd be entertained by the character's wit. I'm adding this one to my TBR list.
