Teaser Tuesday's: A Christmas Story by Jean Shepherd

Teaser Tuesday's is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. To play along, just do the following:

- Grab your current read

- Open to a random page

- Share two “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 list if they like your teaser.

My teaser this week is from page 26 of Jean Shepherd's A Christmas Story:

The days groaned by. Now only three school days remained before Christmas vacation, that greatest time of all the year.

  1. That sounds just like me when I was a kid!

    My TT this week is from The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly: http://wp.me/pZnGI-gb

  2. This is such a good story! The original book is titled "In God We Trust. All Others Pay Cash" and features a collection of stories from that era, some of which take place at Christmastime. There's a great one about a July 4th firecracker gone wrong. I wonder if the book is still in print.
    My Tuesday post features TRAIL MIX.
