Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along with Teaser Tuesday! 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!

Seems like the only book that might snap me out of my reading slump is Dresden..plus they released Ghost Story again but this time with Marsters reading it as it should be. Of course one can’t just start at book 13, so I had to start with Storm Front again. I am having so much fun with it. I also finally got a good friend of mine to read Dresden too.

“I’d made the vampire cry. Great. I felt like a real superhero. Harry Dresden, breaker of monsters’ hearts.”
― Jim Butcher, Storm Front

I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

This weeks random question: Have you ever made a new friend because of a book? (or books)?

I have made many friends due to books! One group of friends that I miss dearly back in Minnesota was my Paperback swap book group. I think books bring people together on a regular basis, whether they are chatting about one they like or debating about one that was liked by one person and not the other. Books are great and everyone can have a different experience with a book. I keep hoping to make some more book friends in my new city.

“She was almost in love with him. No, that’s impossible, she thought: either you are or you aren’t. Love’s the only thing in this world that is unequivocal. There are different kinds of love, certainly, but it’s a you-do or you-don’t proposition with them all.” (Chapter 1) Go set a watchman by Harper Lee

This weeks random question: What book (or books) would you take with you on vacation? Why?

I think this was asked on a Musing Monday before but always good to revisit things. I would bring whatever JR Ward book I was on at the time and my kindle. Nice thing about the kindle is you can have a whole library at your finger tips.

This weeks random question: So, apparently Amazon is now going to pay its Kindle Unlimited & Select authors by pages read. You can read more about this {here}. What do you think of this? Share your thoughts!

I am really not sure how I feel about this one. Musing Monday has stumped me this time because this could be good or it could be bad. The most important thing if you ask me is that Author’s get paid, they work hard and deserve to be paid for the work they do. I understand breaking up albums and paying for a track by track thing there but can you really do that with a book? I mean really? Then I also have to ask is there a certain amount of time you have to spend on a page? What if you spend to long on the page? There are a lot of questions that need answers for this new page by page thing.

Honestly I am not sure this is a good idea there is just to much that needs to be answered. That said I am not one who is on the big bad amazon train either. I proudly have amazon prime and it saves me a lot of money. I buy my dog food on amazon because its around $7 cheaper then getting it locally and I save on the shipping. When you are feeding more then one dog that money adds up, plus it means I do not have to go out in the blazing heat and spend money on gas for dog food. I do support local business but sometimes you have to be logical.I also love my streaming videos on Amazon and my books. Lets face it most local book stores these days (if you have one) cater to the best sellers and modern romance mostly. If you like niche subjects you won’t find much in the local shops but you can find it on amazon.

Bottom line I suppose this could be good, but it could also be very bad. Authors really just need to be paid.

“Being part vampire played havoc on her love life. Tessa didn’t need her dates for their blood. In fact, she had this thing against young male blood. Horrible tasting stuff. Not that she’d tell them that. At least not on first meet.” ~ 1% Vampire in Denial (Family Blood ties Book 1) by Dale Mayer

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Last week, I came across someone’s idea to create waterproof books {see it here}. What do you think about this? Good idea, or bad?

This week I am going to share the book I am working on right now. It is one I can listen to while I am crocheting which is nice given the mood I have been in lately for no reading.

VampireinDenial

Like being a sixteen-year-old vampire isn’t hard enough, Tessa’s throwback human genes make her an outcast among her relatives. But try as she might, she can’t get a handle on the vampire lifestyle and all the…blood.

Turning her back on the vamp world, she embraces the human teenage lifestyle—high school, peer pressure and finding a boyfriend. Jared manages to stir something in her blood. He’s smart and fun and oh, so cute. But Tessa’s dream of a having the perfect boyfriend turns into a nightmare when vampires attack the movie theatre and kidnap her date.

Once again, Tessa finds herself torn between the human world and the vampire one. Will blood own out? Can she make peace with who she is as well as what?

This one is Hosted at the Booking through Thursday Blog.

What do non-reader friends think about your reading habits? Do they understand? Are they sympathetic? Or are they always trying to get you to “get your nose out of that book?

I don’t have to many non-reader friends because I met a lot of my current friends in book groups. That said however, those who I do have which are not readers are confused by the habit. They never try to get me to stop reading (or crocheting) but they don’t understand reading. My Ex didn’t read much and so he also didn’t have any understanding of why I enjoyed it so much and what I got out of it.

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION:Is there a bookshop you absolutely adore? Or, perhaps one you’ve always wanted to visit? What is the name of it, and where is it located?

So to reply to the random question, I love the local Bookmans in Tucson it is so much more then a bookshop it has a bit of everything and I love that. It also welcomes animals to come in the shop! I very much am looking forward to taking some of the crew. I think I will take Watson first because he really needs the confidence building. Petsmart with all the other animals can be a little bit to much for him, he just wants to play with the other animals and they do not always want to say Hello to him and then that upsets him. At Booksmans there is not other animals to contend with and the staff are always so happy to see dogs as are the people in the shop. I have watched and been one of those happy people.

There is also a fantastic range of book shops in London. Some I have been too some I have not yet been too. I am truly in love with all the book shops. Book shops just make me happy. They make me so happy.

Beyond that, what do you do when you are in a reading rut? I love reading and I want to keep on with my reading challenges (which I am so behind on now) but when I am done with work at the end of the day I just don’t seem to want to read right now. I only really want to sit and crochet, I think I am in a full on rut.
