Teaser Tuesday--Big in Japan + Blog Tour Stops & RMQ

For today's Blog Tour Stop, hop on over to Page Girl's Page for a review of Persistence of Vision!

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 CAREFULNOT 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!

My teaser today comes from Big in Japan by Jennifer Stewart Griffith.

Buck squinted, smiling in confusion, but then he realized almost 15,000 people were staring at him and screaming. Horror. He strained out his best grin, looking back and forth to no avail. The spotlight blinded him. What was going on? How long would they torture him with this fierce glare? Mot it along,a lready. yeah, fat guy in teh audience here--fat enough to be a blong sumo wrestler. Fine. Pick on Someone else now.
"You need to stand up, Buck. Go towrad the ring."
Go to ward the light was more like it. Death had hit him swiftly and much more painfully than he'd ever imagined.

Random Movie Quotes (RMQ)


Last week's RMQ was: "I do not much speak of the heart since it is seldom helpful to do so."

This was said by Maggie Smith in last week's Downton Abbey. She plays the Dowager Countess of Grantham. Totally love her in this series! She always makes me laugh. No one guessed this one.

Today's RMQ is:

"This work we perform...it does not serve to look backward. This city; wickedness will ever leave it's spores here. You and I are not magicians. We cannot see through walls or into men's minds...We fight with all the skills we may muster. Beyond that, we may do no more."

Okay, this is another TV quote from an episode two weeks past. What can I say? It was a profound quote week for television. One point for show, one for character, one for actor. Good luck!
