Teaser Tuesday – Hearts in Atlantis
Teaser Tuesday is a fun bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Everyone can play along, all you have to do is simply take the book you are currently reading. And then share 2 ‘teaser’ sentences from any page in the book. I often share more than 2 sentences
Please avoid SPOILER!!
I am currently reading Hearts in Atlantis by my favorite author, Stephen King. So far, I enjoyed the first novella so much 🙂
I love these 2 quotes so much!
From Page 25
“There are also books full of great writing that don’t have very food stories. Read sometimes for the story, Bobby. Don’t be like the book-snobs who won’t do that. Read sometimes for the words – the language. Don’t be like the play-it-safers that won’t do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.”
From Page 34
“But what if I don’t like it?”
Ted shrugged. “Then don’t finish it. A book is like a pump. It gives nothing unless first you give to it. You prime a pump with your own water, you work the handle with your strength. You do this because you expect to get back more than you give….eventually. Do you go along with that?”
“How long would you prime a water-pump and flail the handle when nothing came out?”
Looking forward to reading your teaser 🙂
PS. This is my 950th post \(^^)/
