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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Vistula was a retreat from the tumult, a comfort, full of stillness, such a contrast to what was happening in the bowels of the city. Ferries and barges steamed by, and the vast expanse of water hinted at broad estuaries that meandered into oceans he would one day cross to gain access to a new life.

They saw Jekub roll backwards, change gear with a roar, and attack the truck again. The windows shattered.

Osteopaths can also correct the alignment of bones in a child’s body to help them grow the way nature intended. I have heard many stories of children who were going to need grommets, but – after Osteopathic (or Chiropractic) treatment, didn’t need them because the fluid in the ear drained away.

Naturally Better: Dramatically improve your child’s life, naturally by Kristen Morrison. I just finished this morning so I’ll review it tomorrow, in the meantime you can be thinking about it.

Teaser Tuesday: Truckers by Terry Pratchett

Posted on 13 July 2010. Filed under: Teaser Tuesday | Tags: , , |

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!

Truckers is actually a kids book but it’s one of my favourite Pratchett’s. It’s the first in the Bromiliad Trilogy and is a fabulous little book. I won’t tell you what it’s all about, I’ll read the other two books and then scribble a few words about the series. For the moment you’ll have to put up with my Teaser Tuesday sentences.

VI. On the Lifts, let the Sign Be: This Lift to Carry Ten Persons;

Teaser Tuesday: Problogger – Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett

Tuesday Tuesday is hosted by Miz B over at Should Be Reading.

This book is all about blogs and how to make money from them. I’m not reading a fiction book at the moment so I’m going to be a bit silly and give you my Teaser Tuesday from this one. I’m almost finished so I’ll be able to review it in a day or two and then have something less non-fictional for next Tuesday. The full title is Problogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income. Now, I’m going to be content with getting a four-figure income from my blog or blogs if I manage to start another one but the info is still useful.

“Go to Google and type in virtually any word you can think of, and you’ll often find millions of results. The interesting thing is that for most search results in Google (and other search engines) there is very little for readers to go by in deciding which result to click on.”

Very illuminating, I’m sure.
