Taste Testing Tuesdays (9)

Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays!
Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

On the menu this week is a sample of one book that I'm just about to start and another that will be making an appearance later this month on it's tour around the blogosphere!  Let's take a taste, shall we?

At the end of the page, written in a shaky scrawling hand, was another message:  'I saw Jonah write this paper.  My name is Wilmer Salley.  Right now.' -- pg 68, Powers by John B. Olson

He grabbed my shoulder and said he felt sorry for me and it looked like it was a great car that I had put a lot of work into.  He looked over at Bunkie and said, "At least the dog is all right."  That cop was OK in my book. -- pg 18, A Man and His Maniac:  The Bunkie Story by Charles Franklin Emery III


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 participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Until next time....happy reading!

Great teasers :) I just did a (nonreview) of Powers. I'm interested to see what you think.
