TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

I knew that bridge was a card game, but that was about it. It seemed dull and old-fashioned. Maybe, at one time, bridge might have been some people's idea of fun, but that was before computers and video games.



(Pg 17, The Cardturner by Louis Sachar)

    Ooh, I bet that's a good one! I love the cover.


  2. Julia Says:

    Is this is a guide to playing card game or actual story behind a character talking about life in playing card game?


  3. Melody Says:

    Kathy - I'm enjoying the book so far. And yes, the cover is awesome, isn't it?

    Julia - It's a story, but then the author also did describe the game in details in some parts, which I appreciate since I know nothing about the game.


  4. Your teaser fits nicely with the book title. Here's mine:

  8. Nymeth Says:

    Good teaser, and ever better cover!


  9. I have never played Bridge before - sounds like this book might appeal to my mathsy streak though...

    Here's my teaser this week from The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.


  10. Louis Sachar's Holes was amazing, but I've not read this one - must hunt it down in the library!

    I know bridge was my Grandmother's idea of fun. She was part of a group that played and did lunch every week. I'd not heard of this book before. Here's my teaser from The Duke of Shadows.


  14. Beth F Says:

    I am laughing! We used to play bridge in college.


  15. Interesting teaser; haven't heard of this one. enjoy

    Great teaser and love the cover! This is a new one for me as I've never heard of this book...TBR time!

    This teaser sent me back many years too because there wasa time when I played Bridge quite a bit! Boy was it fun when you played with the right people...a couple of bottles of win added to the fun, too!

    Thanks, Melody!
