Teaser Tuesday (on Wednesday!)
My favorite book blog, "Books Please" has this little challenge each Tuesday. I am a day late here, but thought it would be fun to do anyway. Here are the "official rules": Select a page at random in the book you are currently reading and pick two sentences between lines 7 and 12.
From Wallace Stegner's "Crossing to Safety", Penguin paperback, 1987. Page 95.
"If she could not persuade them, then she would have to extract a promise that they would wait until Sid finished his degree, assuming he went for a degree, and found a job. No more than Charity did she take seriously those nine beanrows."
This is Aunt Emily (Sid's future mother-in-law, called "Aunt" even by her own children) planning her next move...
I would love to read your "Teasers", even if it is Wednesday.
