Teaser Tuesday!

Thanks again to MizB at Should Be Reading for coming up with this meme.  And thanks to ShabbyBlogs.com for providing me with the sweet new background!

Ready?  Go!
  1. Grab your current read.*
  2. Let the book fall open to a random page.
  3. Share with us two (2)** "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  4. Share the title and author of the book, so we can investigate on our own if we like the teaser you've given!
  5. Please avoid spoilers!
*To keep this feature periodic, I will be using both teasers from current reads, and from books I've read before, but haven't discussed on this blog.

**Quantity of sentences may vary, depending on how long it takes to finish the thought within those line parameters. Teasers should still make sense!

This week's Teaser Tuesday showcases Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray (a book I started, but never finished...and hope to someday pick up again):

Mrs. O'Dowd said that her 'Glorvina was not afraid of any man alive, let alone a Frenchman,' and tossed off a glass of beer with a wink which expressed her liking for the beverage.

And how cool is this?  As I was flipping through my copy of this book, I came across two pictures of me with each of my parents.  I love these pictures because we are all cracking up in them.  I thought they'd been lost for 2 years.  Literary classics to the rescue!

You'll have to excuse the poor positioning...these pictures were taken long before the digital age...and time is still standing in B.S. at my house (Before Scanners).


  1. Fun teaser, and even better surprise! :) I very rarely ever find anything as nice falling out of my books.
