Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - June 9th
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!

She went back to using her spoon as she was supposed to, instead of as a launcher.
He was right that it's amazing to have nearly every part of a baseball game play out in front of you - the view from that part of the stadium is remarkable - but he got one thing wrong: I had the best seat in the house, on that night and every night I sat behind home plate.
