Teaser Tuesday: 11-2-2009


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, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
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!


He was a classic barroom-brawler type, a huge man with a fleshy nose that lay flat against his face, supposedly because he'd had the cartilage removed so he could take more punches. The beating Tex had taken in his fight with Holmes had been so severe, Howard Cosell had retired from calling boxing matches in protest that the fight wasn't stopped sooner. (p95, The Time of My Life by Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi)






Teaser Tuesday is hosted at Should be Reading. Come on over and share your teaser, too!

I want to read this book and I will probably have to have a box of tissues as well. He was my favorite actor since I was 11 (not saying how old I am now..LOL)

Great teaser! Don't think I could read the book, though - such a sad situation.

OMG, I loved Patrick Swayze. He could light up a screen with that smile and those eyes. So sad to end with such a horrid disease.
