Booking Through Thursday: Live In

This week BTT asks: "If you had to choose to live within a novel, which would it be?" -- which is a very intriguing question for me at the moment. M and I are in the midst of our move from Virginia back to Texas, and I've been spending the last couple of weeks packing, packing, packing. Oh, and doing a little packing, too! And now we're just days away from hitting the road to follow the van (so to speak) on its way to our new abode.

Sooooo.... While I can't really think of any specific novel I'd like to live in, I really would appreciate the benefits of a teleporter right now -- something that would just scramble all the molecules of all the stuff we've got to move and then reassemble everything, 1500 miles away. And do the same with the hubby and me. So my new-environment-novel would probably have to be science fiction -- most likely one of the Star Trek books. Hey there, Scotty, fire up the old transporter and beam me home!

Teaser Tuesdays: The Key

This week my teaser lines come from one of the vintage mysteries I've been reading: The Key, by Patricia Wentworth -- one of her "Miss Silver" series. I'm reading the Kindle edition on my iPad, so I'm not sure about page numbers, but it's from Chapter 18 and Location 1518 of 3440 (44%): really wouldn't be at all nice to feel you'd been living with a murderer. But...of course the police wouldn't have arrested him unless they were quite, quite sure he'd done it, and it would be too, too dreadful if they were to hang him when he was innocent.
Ah, yes - just too, too dreadful indeed.

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.
