“Isn't it odd how much fatter a book gets when you've read it several times?" Mo had said..."As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells...and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower...both strange and familiar.”

Teaser Tuesdays!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Today’s Teaser Tuesdays sentences come from Agatha Christie:  An Autobiography by Agatha Christie.

“Monty’s health was improving, and as a result he was much more difficult to control. He was bored, and for relaxation took to shooting out of his window with a revolver.”

LEAVE A COMMENT with the link to your Teaser Tuesday post from your current read, or share your "teasers" in a comment here.

Thank you for joining me for Teaser Tuesdays and have a great reading week!


  1. Looks awesome! I love a good memoir!

  2. That is a somewhat disturbing teaser. Who's Monty? Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. I like your site. There are so many books that get missed and it's great to see reviews of them to remind me to revisit them. I look forward to your future posts. My Teaser Tuesday is from The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Stop by if you have a chance. http://bookconnection.wordpress.com/

  4. I love this Teaser! What a character Monty must be. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.


While your comments are appreciated, I must ask that you do not nominate me for any awards. Happy reading and have an awesome day!
