Teaser Tuesday, January 18

I'll get to the teaser in a minute, but first a special announcement about a book giveaway over at Rose City Reader, a terrific book blog from up Portland way. This is apparently a regular feature that I have been missing because I would just check in to see what teasers Ms. Rose posts. I have learned the error of my ways. But how on earth does she get through all the books she does? Amazing!

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand: A Novel (Random House Reader's Circle)I am savoring my book this week and suspect I will be sorry when I'm finished. Major Pettigrew's Last Stand was recommended to me by a friend, though I actually first heard about it through, of all things, the Costco Connection magazine. It is wonderful. Here's the teaser:

"Extra relatives are useful, I suppose--additional bridge player at family parties, or another kidney donor," he babbled. "I congratulate you."

I love the Major. I'm trying to think who should play him if and when they make a movie. It could be a terrific movie as well as a very satisfying read.

Information on Teaser Tuesday can be found at Should Be Reading where MizB is your gracious host.

I had never thought of "kidney donor" as a possible use for relatives. Funny! Happy reading!

He sounds like a delightful character, I love to read about people with so much personality. If the rest of the book is like those two sentences, I bet it's a hoot! And thanks for sharing that link to Rose City Reader, I love learning about other bloggers in my area.
