Teaser Tuesday: 3.31.09

So it's time for another weekly post. But this one is short, I promise!

Teaser Tuesdays!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Okay, I'll bite. This sounds like fun. So here's my teaser this week. It's from Backtracked by Pedro De Alcantara

From page 5 of the hardcover edition (I just barely started it):

"Soon it'd be five years since the towers went down, and Jimmy with them. Jimmy the All-American, Jimmy the Hero, Jimmy the Saint. Dying in your prime is a good career move. Nobody remembers your defects."

Okay, so that's more than two sentences. But I couldn't just stop in the middle of the thought. If you've been intrigued, follow the Amazon link below to find out more about Backtracked. And look for a review (someday) soon. I do have to finish the book first, after all!
