Teaser Tuesday: Art of Asking

Once again the wheel of time has turned to

Teaser TuesdayEven though it will be Wednesday when this finally posts. You know how things keep piling up . . .

Just in case you don’t know, Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! All you have to do is grab the book you’re currently reading, open to a random page and share two sentences from that page. But make sure you don’t share any spoilers!*

*I wish I could take credit for this introduction, but I shamelessly stole it from Heather over at bitsnbooks. To help me make amends, you should go check out her blog.

Last night I started Amanda Palmer’s Art of Asking. I was just going to grab two sentences and ended up reading the first 64 pages; I only stopped because I had to sleep sometime and I really did need to make it to work on time this morning. That’s how good it is. Now I’m going to break my own rules and share not two but three sentences:

Here's the thing: all of us come from some place 
of wanting to be seen, understood, accepted, 
connected.
 
Every single one of us wants to be believed.

Artists are often just . . . louder about it.

If that doesn’t spark your interest, bear in mind that Amanda Palmer herself retweeted my library run to get her book:

In Retrospect

I awarded last week’s book Republic of Pirates 3 out of 5 stars. I’m still working on writing a review; stay tuned to Goodreads!

  1. I think I need to read this. I studied Palmer’s Ted talk a few months ago for uni and wrote an essay about it (which I did surprisingly well on) – I watched the video over and over again and something different jumped out at me every time I watched. She’s such an interesting person.
