Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19

First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

Taste Testing Tuesdays (83)


Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!  Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading
On the menu this week...a book that's soon to be finished, but still eager to be shared.
Ready for a taste?
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
 
We all put gel in our hair and wore black sunglasses - we were looking real cool.  Under our arms we carried our piggy banks, tin cans, pillow cases, hollowed-out stuffed animals or whatever we used to stash our allowance.  We still had no idea what Danny was planning, not until we stood right in front of the bank. 
-- pg 90, The Wild Soccer Bunch:  Diego the Tornado (bk 2) by Joachim Masannek
It's not what you think.....but what does occur is simply well planned and over the top.  You can't but smile at the efforts of this group of kids, or the antics.  You gotta hand it to them, once they put their minds to something, there's no stopping them.....a great message to young readers as well. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
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.* 

 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Until next time....happy reading!

This is originally a German book, made into a popular German movie with (I think) 3 sequels. My son has the second movie on DVD. Interesting stuff, and a neat story. :)

What a wonderful picture the author paints, I can clearly see these children, piggy banks under arms.
