Teaser Tuesday 100608

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!


Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde

5.3.21.01.002: Once allocated, postcodes are permanent, and for life.

pg. 79



I discovered this book via someone's teaser tuesday and I am glad I added it to my reading list. I really enjoyed it - unfortunately the sequels are not due out for at least some years. :( I tried to buy the first book in another series by this author...but to no avail!! But this book was a lot of fun.

I've tried a few Jasper Fforde books but his humor rubs me the wrong way most of the time. Pussreboots.

Postal codes for life? My middle-aged brain would appreciate that! This writer sounds very quirky--aimed at a youthful audience?

My TT is posted a bit late, but there now. It's for the Stieg Larsson Millennium trilogy, including Girl with Dragon Tattoo. Also a bit of movie review of same. My link: Summit Musings
