Taste Testing Tuesdays

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 title that I am having SO much fun with, I even laughed out loud during my lunch break yesterday from an image created in the story that just tickled me...and yes, I had to stop reading to explain the outburst to by lunch buddy.  Luckily, she's a reader too...totally understand and proceeded to laugh along with me!  ^_^  Though I shan't be sharing THAT particular scene, there are plenty of others to choose from.  Let's see what the random-page-fairy turns up today.
Ready?  Set?  Sample!

Okay...wait a second...consider that a false start.
The random page I turned to was indeed HI-larious...but I shan't be sharing that one either.  Let's try this, I'll pick a page with today's date in it...*rummages through book*...eureka!

Cynthia Langston

The energy in New York is like a jolt of electricity, whereas here it's more like a soft, steady breeze.  I heard once that people can be put into two categories:  In the depths of your heart, you're either a New York person or a California person.  As if three thousand miles of in-between material for constructing a personality don't exist.  But now I understand what it means.  It's about the environment that feeds your lifeblood, which kind of energy makes you feel alive and which kind makes you feel sedated.
-- pg 111-112

True, no?
Okay, so maybe not like life-altering truth but still...definitely a valid point.
As for me, I'm still torn between the two because they are certainly very different beasts and really, home is where the heart is not simply what locale makes your pulse race...and our lead character has reason for her's to race in BOTH!  (Lucky gal! ^_^)

So...what book are you lost in this week?
Oh come on...just a little tease?



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!

O cool. I totally get this teaser.

From "Guy Walks into a Bar Car" by David Sedaris, selected for inclusion in The Best American Essays 2010.

What was it he and I talked about so intently? Perhaps the thrill was that we could talk, and our tongues, flabby from lack of exercise, could flap and make sounds in their familiar way.

Great teaser, but now I'm curious about the passages you didn't share with us!

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Hmm, sounds interesting. :) Thank you!
