First Day of Read-A-Thon Challenge!


Straight from Shelf Addiction to my blog….here it goes!

The Challenge Guideline:

  • Grab the book you’re currently reading (or recently read)
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page  NO spoilers allowed! Choose passages void of spoilers. The goal is to entice, yet not ruin the book for others!
  • Share the title & author, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
  • Last and but not least, link up your post!

Okay friends and neighbors, despite the crappy couple of days I never back down from a challenge and I NEVER quit something I have committed to. So here we go.

PsychopathTest-Cvr-FNLMy Book: The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry by Jon Ronson (you know? the guy who wrote The Men Who State at Goats?).

Teaser One: Abbott said, “Let’s go outside and settle this like men,” and so they did, and Abbott got out a knife and stabbed Richard Adan to death.

Teaser Two: When the police finally caught up with him, you know what he told them about the guy he stabbed?’ Bob said, “He said, ‘Oh, but he would never have made it as an actor.'”

Teasers found on page 107.

So far I am loving this book which is both startlingly scary and very, very funny. I cannot wait to spend the night with my cat curled in my lap, reading this book!
