Teaser Tuesdays—May 10, 2011

Teaser TuesdaysTeaser 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!

My teasers:

Excellent read so far. I should have a review some time this week.

  1. I've been wanting to read People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks for quite some time, but I've never gotten around to it. After looking up a plot summary of Caleb's Crossing, I now have two books by Brooks in my TBR pile! Just out of curiosity, how do you choose which books to read? Do you visit a certain blog for book recommendations? You always feature such interesting selections!

    1. I decide what to read in a variety of ways. it might be worthy of a blog post. Book reviews on Goodreads account for some of my choices. Certainly other book bloggers' reviews have added books to my TBR pile. What I do when I see a book that looks likely is add it to my to-read pile in Goodreads so I don't forget it. I also find books from Amazon recommendations. I subscribe to weekly emails from Any New Books in categories that interest me, such as history.

      Thank you for your kind words about the reading selections! Mostly, I just keep my eyes and ears open. I love to read, and I'm always on the lookout for books I think I will like.

      The other Geraldine Brooks is on my TBR pile, too. I actually read Caleb's Crossing because I won an ARC through Goodreads' First Reads program. I try to check in there about once a week to see what new giveaways they're hosting. I have won two books through the program already, and I have only bee participating for a month.

      1. Thanks for the tips! I'm setting up a Goodreads account as we speak. I've been using Shelfari, but I think I'm going to enjoy Goodreads even more.

        1. Shelfari is really pretty. I love the bookshelves. I have a Shelfari account, too. I just like Goodreads more because it has more features and more flexibility. Feel free to friend me at either place.
