Teaser Tuesday (Oct 9th)

Hi guys and girls, it's Teaser Tuesday again. Hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, anyone can join in by doing 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 and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) lists if they like your teasers!


Here's my teaser:

"Self-discipline is the most essential factor in the development of personal power, because it enables you to control your appetite and your tendency to spend more than you earn and your habit of 'striking back' at those who offend you and the other destructive habits which cause you to dissipate your energies through non-productive effort that takes on forms too numerous to be catalogued in this lesson."

 Taken from "The Law of Success" by Napoleon Hill. He came out with many cracking sentences like this one. Hope you enjoyed it!

"Didier left me, Mr Daley. Just as soon as he'd spent every centime I had to my name."

Sidney Sheldon's Angel of the Dark by Tilly Bagshawe

That sure is a long sentence, but it makes a lot of sense. Sounds like a heavy read.
My teaser is from CONFESSIONS OF A CORPORATE SLUT.

I struggle with self discipline. A lot. If I had a little more of it, I'm life would be much better!

It's not a quote you can read just once! I had to go over it several times before I could take it all in. Nice teaser. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh dear. I have no self-discipline at all.

Your teaser is very deep - but makes sense :)

Sometimes non-productive time is necessary for sanity though. Here's Mine

Hill is certainly one of the trail blazers when it comes to books about personal success.

I have a lot more self discipline now than I did, but could certainly use more.

Good teaser. Self-discipline can be difficult to cultivate. Thanks for visiting!

Sasha @ The Bookshelf said...

Wow, there's a lot of information in that one sentence. I had to re-read it a couple of times and each time I unpacked something new from it. Great!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Happy reading!

I was just having a discussion with a co-worker regarding self-discipline, sounds like an interesting read.

Sorry for being late to return your visit, I have been away on holidays!
I am reasonably self-disciplined, but do need to ensure that I keep myself on track by using tools to ensure my progress.

Duncan D. Horne - the Kuantan blogger said...

Thanks CM Brown, we all need to do some self-checks at times!

Erika Anderson said...

Great teaser! Thanks for stopping by.

This book is being sold everywhere with a lie-- that it is written by Sheldon. The author is Tilly Bagshawe. Having said that, it is a decent read, but I was disappointed by the end. It leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth.
