Teaser Tuesday (9)

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
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!


 This week, of course, is Water for Elephants Week on Book Brats.  I've been a bad blogger and wasn't able to post as planned on Sunday and Monday thanks to a really bad cold and a lack of foresight in scheduling posts.  Totally 100% my fault.

So I've actually selected the first paragraph of the first page of the prologue.
"Only three people were left under the red and white awning of the grease joint: Grady, me, and the fry cook. Grady and I sat at a battered wooden table, each facing a burger on a dented tin plate. The cook was behind the counter, scraping his griddle with the edge of a spatula. He had turned off the fryer some time ago, but the odor of grease lingered."
 Water for Elephants was written by Sara Gruen and came out April 9th 2006 from Algonquin Books.  It's 335 pages long.

Make sure to enter the contest by clicking on the ENTER NOW link in the sidebar.  Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday!
