Teaser Tuesday with The Graveyard Book

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!
I thought I read this book before, but I was wrong. I found a hardback copy for a buck and I had to pick it up. I read a few pages and didn't remember the story at all. I'm so happy I found it. It's an awesome story. But then again, I don't expect anything less from Neil Gaiman.

Here's your teaser:
"You know, I heard rumors, while I was away," said Silas, "that some weeks ago that you both went somewhat further afield than I would have been able to follow. Normally, I would advice caution, but, unlike some, the ghoul-folk have short memories." (page 98)

  7. You got a good deal. I hope you are enjoying the story. I'm not really a Gaiman fan. Here are my teasers from River Road by Suzanne Johnson and Beautifully Broken by Sherry Soule. Happy reading!

    Nice find, especially for a buck!

  13. Lucky you! A hardback for a dollar can't be beat. Sometimes our local library has a fundraiser where they sell books, so you can gets bargains and support a good cause at the same time.
