First thing today is Teaser Tuesday:
This week’s teaser comes from The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, p 23:
“Noboru Wataya, /Where are you? / Did the wind-up bird /Forget to wind your spring?”
OK, so it’s technically a poem- but Noboru is both a man and a cat, so I think he’s forgiven :)
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 know you might be thinking that tantrums don’t usually go with Teaser Tuesday, so I’ll get my whinge over and done with now, so please feel free not to read!
Today I received my first ‘nasty’ blog comments (although not from any bloggers that I recognise). Why can’t we all play nicely? I don’t profess to be a perfect book blogger- certainly my reviews are far from high literature and I try not to give too much away plot-wise because I’d like you to share in the joy I had from the particular book- but I don’t deserve to be belittled either. May I suggest if you’re here to get information for an essay or report, it would just be a lot easier to read the book, the way everyone else did before the internet!
Rant over, resume normal transmission and have a great week!
