Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan p. 35

"While I'm digging for change in the front desk's dark drawers, his attention turns, at last, to the shadowy shelves dominating the back half of the store. 'What's all that?' he says."

Asking about the dusty tall shelves at the back of the store is what all the customers ought to do but few of them actually do. But this customer is a friend of the clerk, so he's primed to take a closer look.
