Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by 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!
Here's my teaser for the week:
“Oh great, just great,” he calls back to me. “The Piggly Wiggly’s gone under too.”
We pass the barren supermarket, and I see the darkened sign—that familiar pig in his funny hat. Once the pig shone bright and jolly. Now in the gloom, he sports a menacing leer.
While He was Away

I've never been to a Piggly Wiggly but every time I hear it mentioned whether it's a movie, book, song anything it just always brings a smile to my face so I had to put it as my teaser.
I've been to a Piggly Wiggly, back when I lived in Florida. Things must be bad when the Piggly-Wiggly goes under. Here's Mine
I agree! How can you not smile at a name like the Piggly Wiggly? I wish we had one where I live just to giggle.

Fun teaser. I've never been to a Piggly Wiggly either but the name is always such fun to say. Love the teaser.
My Teaser is here.
Do not know what a Piggly Wiggly is but it sounds funny.
Oh, I hate abandoned stores that were a piece of the landscape for us!
Thanks for sharing; this one sounds good.
Here's MY TUESDAY MEMES POST
I seem to remember Piggly Wigglys being around here when I was a child. Haven't seen one in years though. My teasers are from Dead Ringer by Allen Wyler and Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear. Happy reading!
Haha...we don't have Piggly Wiggly's in my part of the south, but I've seen them when I visit family up north. This teaser is pretty funny. I wasn't that interested in this book before, but I might have to give it a try now. :) Thanks for sharing & for stopping by my teaser from Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake. Happy Tuesday! :D

I grew up near a Piggly Wiggly supermarket and always loved that name! The image of a menacing pig is so weird and really sets a gloomy mood. Your teaser makes me wonder why the store closed down.
My teaser is from Hot Issues, Cool Choices.
I love the sound of Piggly Wiggly too, but so sad it's closed. Great teaser!
I've always wondered where all these Piggly-Wiggly's are!
Thanks for stopping by My Teaser Post!

I have a book on my TBR pile titled, "A Piggly Wiggly Wedding" by Robert Dalby. However, reading his Piggly Wiggly books are the only times I've been in a Piggly Wiggly.
It seems someone has been away awhile. Things change,but we all think that certain things or people shouldn't.
Here's mine: http://fiktishuhs.blogspot.com/2012/08/teaser-tuesday.html
