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

She Got Up Off the Couch: And Other Heroic Acts from Mooreland, Indiana by Haven Kimmel

"I slept in my clothes all summer, so I could just hop up in the morning and go. I was working on simplifying my life, which I had discovered would be done very easily if I ceased to do the following: washing my face, brush my hair, brush my teeth, wear shoes."

Zippy is somewhat neglected, but very happy. It's funny to hear a kid about 10 years old talk about the need to simplify her life, although she's taking things a bit far.

Great teaser! It definitely makes me want to read the book. Mine is from Madeleine L'Engle's memoir, Two-Part Invention.

Interesting teaser. Leaving out those things would simplify life. I'm on the linky if you want to see what I'm teasing this week. Happy reading!

In other words, just give up.

It is intriguing that a person as young as she is feels the need to simplify her life. Wondering why...

Hmmm...I'm still contemplating what I would look like without brushing my hair and going barefoot and also the no teeth brushing.
