Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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 TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I’m reading “Faking It” by Jennifer Crusie. Picked up the paperback at the library, wanting a quick fun read before I delve into a couple of my next book club books. I’m not too far in the book, so I’m just gonna pick a few places:
“So I thought I could go and distract them and you could sneak in and steal it,” Gwen said. “And then we can bury it in the basement again.”
Three blocks away, Clea sat at the breakfast table, tapping her fingernail against the coffee cup. It was the closest she could come to throwing the damn thing at Mason and still project loving warmth, the kind of woman he’d want to face over the breakfast table for the rest of his life.
I guess I didn’t follow the rules exactly, as I chose two different locations in the book! Oh well. They were fun and random little teasers from a fun little book! I also had to look up the definition of ‘meme’ because I keep seeing it places! According to Wikipedia (the source I love to use when I don’t care about the research!) a MEME is: meme ( /ˈmiːm/, rhyming with “cream”), a relatively newly coined term, identifies ideas or beliefs that are transmitted from one person or group of people to another. The concept comes from an analogy: as genes transmit biological information, memes can be said to transmit idea and belief information.
A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes, in that they self-replicate, mutate and respond to selective pressures
Your turn!!! Comment with your thoughts on MEMES or your teaser!
Off to read!
