Wow, already July 6th! Time flies, huh? Hope everyone had a great 4th of July – didn't eat too many hot dogs, didn't collapse from heat stroke or get singed by errant fireworks sparks. Hope you got some reading done, too!
This week my teaser lines come from Noah's Compass by Anne Tyler. It's only the second book by Tyler I've read. I read The Accidental Tourist back in the '80s, but don't have much memory of it. However, I'm enjoying this one enormously. This quote comes from page 112, and has the book's protagonist Liam Pennywell thinking about his new friend (and potential love interest) Eunice:
People like Eunice just never had quite figured out how to get along in the world. They might be perfectly intelligent, but they were subject to speckles and flushes; their purses resembled wastepaper baskets; they stepped on their own skirts.I can totally identify with Eunice.
How about you? Got a great teaser from a book you're reading right now? Want to play along? 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.
