Teaser Tuesdays -- Feb 09, 2010


Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

~ Pg. 53, The Help by Kathryn Stockett.

I see this book everywhere but for some reason remain uninterested. Maybe it's overexposure. Good teaser though.
