Tuesday (10/20) Teaser

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall to a random page.
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • 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!
I'm currently "reading" three books, so you get three teasers.

A non-fiction book I started because it sounded interesting:

By another naming convention, the name of the "sire" would be ordered first, such that the offspring of a male polar bear and a female grizzly would be a "pizzly bear," while the offspring of a male grizzly and a female polar bear would be a "grolar bear."
One line from p. 59 of Bear-ology: Fascinating Bear Facts, Tales & Trivia by Sylvia Dolson.

A fiction book (re-read) by a favorite author:

A few seconds of seeking. Brief sense of vulnerability.
Energy poured through the prism.
From p. 216 of Amaryllis by Jayne Castle.

A non-fiction book I have to read to prepare for today's Midterm:

In a format specifier, if the number of columns in the option width is less than the number of column required to output the value of the expression, the output is expanded to the requirednumber of columns. That is, the output is not truncated.
From the "Quick Review" section at the end of Ch. 3 and not random. Found on p. 157 of Java Programming: From Problem Analysis to Program Design (4th Edition) by D.S. Malik.


  1. Fun teasers! Looks like you got a lot on your plate there! Java programming wooo...!

  2. good teasers although I may have lost a brain cel on the last one.
    Good luck on your mid-term.
    Here's my teaser

  3. Love that you have more than one iron in the fire. :)

  4. hmsgofita - Oh yeah, that's how I feel. wooo...!

    Jenny Girl - That teaser isn't random specifically so I could pick a line that would have a mind-numbing effect. =)

    J. Kaye - Not my usual way of doing this, but I guess it works for now.


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
