Teaser Tuesday, June 8 - Color Blind: A Memoir

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 either in the comments below or on your own blog (give a link to your blog so we can check it out!)
  • 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 so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week's teaser:

"Humiliated, I turn away from him and look at my Aunty Adaeze who is doing a dance my mother calls the 'funky chicken' and crooning, 'Hey, hey' in time to the music.  I envy Aunty Adaeze's lack of self-consciousness; her obvious joy in her own body."

p. 63, Color Blind: A Memoir by Precious Williams


  1. LOL, I don't dance in public for a similar reason.

    My teaser can be found http://blackandbookish.blogspot.com/2010/06/teaser-tuesday-june-8-graceling.html

  2. "That was their M.O. back in the day.

    Find a kid with a boatload or problems, most especially problems of a criminal nature."

    from 'Black Water Rising' (which is a FABULOUS book) by Attica Locke. Page 194.

  3. Why is Reverend Morrisohn in my wife's house at 2 in the morning?

    Jesus Boy - Preston Allen - pg 178

    I've been real busy the last two weeks and have not had a chance to do much reading, but this book is very good!
