First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - August 28th


Every Tuesday Vicki at I'd Rather Be At the Beach 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?



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, now being hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. 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...





First Chapter...

It was six-thirty at night and Elizabeth Adams was still at her desk.  The newsroom was comparatively quiet - the usual cacophony of clattering typewriter keys absent for the time being.


Teaser...

How was she ever going to explain to her friends that her daughter was not only working - she said the word as if it left a foul taste in her mouth - but working for some ghastly newspaper.


What do you think? Would you keep reading?
