Teaser Tuesday - The End of Your LIfe Book Club by Will Shwalbe

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!

“When I was finished, I looked around at Mom and Dad's bedroom - and at Mom, resting relatively peacefully, but with that rasping breath that means there isn't much time left. She was surrounded by books - a wall of bookshelves, books on her night table, a book beside her. Here were...and the Bible. They were Mom's companions and teachers. They had shown her the way. And she was able to look at them as she readied herself for the life everlasting that she knew awaited her. What comfort could be gained from staring at my lifeless e-reader?  I also noted a special pile of books. They were to be the next ones for our book club. There were in their own small stack, separate from the others.”

Ok, this quote is more than two sentences but the sentence I wanted to use about the e-reader makes most sense in context with the paragraph.  

So far, I am really enjoying this memoir.  If you love books, and I know you all do, this is a great one to pick up for the literal exploration of books as mother and son share their love of books, reading and discussing various novels and non-fiction while the mother received treatment for cancer.  Just be sure to have a few tissues ready.
