Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

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!

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese p. 33

"As he was about to sleep he remembered that he hadn't done a rectal exam. Guilt and fear that his chief would somehow discover his lapse moved him to get up and go out into the night. Blessing tracked the patient down to the bar where for the price of a beer the man agreed to drop his pants and be digitally examined - be 'blessed' as the event came to be described - and only then was the young doctor's conscience eased."

I think it would take more than a beer to get me to do that somewhere other than a doctors office! My Teaser is here.

That's hilarious! I have to get this book if the Teaser is any indication of the humour involved. Do let me know if this is a constant brain dive since I do love its eclectic style already.

Posted Teaser on JD Robb's Kindred in Death. Enjoying it big time.
