When Langley brings something into the house that has caught his fancy - a piano, a toaster, a Chinese bronze horse, a set of encyclopedias - that is just the beginning. Whatever it is, it will be acquired in several versions because until he loses his interest and goes on to something else he'll be looking for its ultimate expression. I think there may be a genetic basis for this.Well, so far I don't have newspapers stacked to the ceiling or a Model T in the dining room, but if there is a genetic basis to the hoarding impulse, I've definitely got the gene!
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB17 at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or participate yourself, head on over to her blog. And these are the rules: Grab your current read; Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you're getting your "teaser" from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given! Please avoid spoilers!
