TUESDAY TEASER

TUESDAY TEASER is a meme started by The Purple Booker. Thank you to that blog for the image above.

Tuesday Teaser’s originator, The Purple Booker, encourages readers to copy a couple of sentences at random from one’s current read to “tease ” others into reading the same book. My Tuesday Teaser is from John Green’s Turtles All the Way Down:

Davis and Noah’s billionaire father has disappeared and Aza, the protagonist is trying to get a lead on him to collect the reward money for giving information to his whereabouts. Noah speaks of his fears and concerns for his non-involved parent: “Nobody wants to find him…It’s like I can’t think of anything else. I…it’s…Do you think he would really disappear and not even text us? Do you think maybe he’s trying and we just haven’t figured out how to listen?”

I am at the point where Aza and her best friend, Daisy, are getting clues and have received a large sum of money from Davis and his lawyer NOT to give those clues to the police.

What are you reading currently? What is happening? Copy a few sentences to “tease” us into wanting to read the book. What? You have no blog to post on? That’s ok. Use the reply box to post your “teaser.” Be sure to mention the title and author, and PLEASE, no spoiler alerts to the plot.

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
