Feeling crummy usually translates into lots of reading for me. This time is no different. So, here's today's Teaser Tuesday from Should Be Reading.
• 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!
Since it's Banned Books Week, I figured I'd start reading one. Mark Twain's Adventures of Tom Sawyer has made some lists, and I've been meaning to read it, so here we go.
"Mary gave him a brand-new "Barlow" knife worth twelve and a half cents; and the convulsion of delight that swept his system shook him to his foundations. True, the knife would not cut anything, but it was a 'sure-enough' Barlow, and there was inconceivable grandeur in that - though where the Western boys ever got the idea that such a weapon could possibly be counterfeited to its injury is an imposing mystery and will always remain so, perhaps."
Yeah, Twain gets kinda long winded, but it's been a pretty entertaining read so far.
