This week my teaser lines come from The Small Hand, a novella by Susan Hill. It's been published in the same volume with another of her short works, Dolly. She writes such lovely, spooky tales and I always enjoy them. But this snippet isn't scary -- just the narrator ruminating on his book buying habits. Something I could really identify with.
My resolution every New Year is to halve the number of books I have and every year I fail to keep it. For every dozen I sell or give away, I buy twenty more. (Chapter 2/Loc.183)
