Tuesday Teasers








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 “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!)
(p 82)"She wished she could tell the difference between Jews and Italians. Some of the Jews wore skullcaps and many more of them appeared to wear glasses than did the Italians".
(I'm enjoying Brooklyn, by Colm Toibin)......2009, Scribner. What are you reading?

  2. I loved this book and look forward to reading more Toibin...maybe The Blackwater Lightship next. I'm still reading Someone at a Distance, but have started Little Bee on audio and it's great!

  3. Interesting teaser...I'm wondering why she wants to tell the difference in the first place.
