Taste Testing Tuesdays (25)

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 ... two current reads in progress.  First up, a title that we currently have a giveaway for (check out the right sidebar for details) and secondly, a humorous look at life through a dog's eyes.
Let's have a taste, shall we?

Is it synthetic?  I asked.
Do you think we could afford wool?  she replied.
-- pg 154, Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow

Seconds later she emerged from the house with the "medical dressing" in her left hand.  What she found would have put the average dog in a psychiatric kennel, or at least required some serious counseling.  Her brilliant life-saving idea?
A Stayfree maxi pad.
--pg 76, Bad to the Bone:  Memoir of a Rebel Doggie Blogger by Bo Hoefinger


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!

Can I just say that I absolutely love how many dog/animal books you review?! It's such a trademark for you and I always know where to find great recommendations for these types of books (well, others too, but you know?).

Can't wait to read the reviews on both of usual!

Nice ones :)

I'm reading "The Late, Lamented Molly Marx" by Sally Koslow. I can't give a page number because I'm reading it electronically on my Palm, but it's in chapter three.

Molly's talking about where she's going to be buried:

I will, forever, be only six exits away from Ikea. A shame I don't need any furniture, because I have plenty of time to decipher the directions.

I'm really enjoying the book, and I should be done in a few days and will post my review on my blog then!

The1stdaughter: *BIG SMILE* Thanks! Dogs hold a special place in my heart and their entics generally remind me of my own fuzzy wonders. I've been lucky enough to run across several titles that are just that good in this area!

Juju: Thanks!

Heather: Love the teaser. Though it's talking about her death, it's laughable goodness! Thanks for sharing! ^_^
