teaser tuesday (37)

Tuesday, May 18, 2010 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:


Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!


“‘Eddie, how long have we been father and son?’

‘As long as I can remember.’

‘Exactly. Now, remember: Best behavior, and keep your wits about you. The towns in the Outer Fringes sometimes interpret the Rulebook a bit differently than we might be used to, and are awash with the potential for embarrassing faux pas.’”


-p. 36 of Jasper Fforde’s Shades of Grey

Great teaser! I think I've seen a few other bloggers read this book as well. How'd you like it? I'm not familiar with this author.

Thanks for coming by my teaser last week!
