Teaser Tuesdays: The Warden


This week my teaser lines come from The Warden, by Anthony Trollope. First published in 1855, it was the first of his "Barsetshire" novels. This snippet comes from pages 226-227, and since I've just started reading the book, I'm not sure exactly what's going on; but I do agree with the sentiment.
The place seemed much more suitable to his requirements than the room in which he had dined....There were quantities of books, and long rows of sofas. What on earth could be more luxurious than a sofa, a book, and a cup of coffee?



Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

  5. Although it was written over 150 years ago, it's still true today! How many books can make that claim?

  6. I can't agree more, though I would be switching out the coffee for a Dt. Coke! My teaser comes from Bath Tangle by Georgette Heyer.

  8. I'd choose a different beverage than coffee, but otherwise spot on! Thanks for visiting!
