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!
“What is it, Ash? What’s wrong?”
“You must hurry. You don’t have much time.”
This week’s Question:Once you begin a book, do you feel compelled to finish it? Or have you been known to give up in the middle of a book, to walk away from a book that is just too annoying, boring, etc.?
My answer:For the past year of reading requested reviews, I have had to put some books aside into the DNF pile. I will read, at a minimum of 50-100 pages and if I haven’t been pulled into the story line by then, I give up. There are so many books to review and read, that if I am struggling to read a book that does not interest me, my thinking is, that I am wasting time where I could be reading the next book in my pile.
I am so behind in reading, so when I saw this Read-A-Thon, I HAD to sign up. Plus, what better way to exercise after eating a huge Thanksgiving dinner with all the desserts. I plan on giving the muscles of my eyes, hands and fingers a real work out reading all those words and turning all those pages lol. I’m ready for this one, the books are in order and all that is left to do, is to get hubby to understand the concept of a Read-A-Thon.
From Jenn’s site:
Last Thanksgiving, Candace from Beth Fish Reads
, Jen from Devourer of Books
& I unveiled Thankfully Reading, an excuse to do an obscene amount of reading over the long Thanksgiving weekend. I’m excited to announce that we’ll be doing the event again this year!
Here are the details:
There are no rules to the weekend, we’re simply hoping to devote a good amount of time to reading, and perhaps meeting some of our reading challenges and goals for 2010. We thought it’d be fun if we cheered each other on a bit. If you think you can join in, grab the button and sign on to Mr. Linky. If you don’t have a blog, use the comments!
During the weekend, come back and link any Thankfully Reading Weekend posts to the Mr. Linky we’ll put up here on Friday, November 26. Feel free to link as many posts as you’d like. On Sunday will put up another Mr. Linky for your wrap-up post.
We’ll also be checking in on Twitter using hashtag #thankfulreading. Join in for the weekend or for only a single day. No rules, no pressure!
This year, we will be doing some fun Thankfully Reading mini-challenges over the weekend. Be sure to check back Thanksgiving weekend for more details!
And just to let you know, if you call, you may have to talk to the hubby, I won’t be accepting calls lol.
