Teaser Tuesdays (June 8)
Teaser Tuesday is a fun bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. The idea is to open the book you are currently reading at a random page and share two teaser sentences from that page. Of course the teaser should avoid being a spoiler. And please include the title and author so others can read the book if they wish. Here is mine for this week:
It was plump, one afternoon, in the middle of my very hour: the children were tucked away, and I had come out for my stroll. One of the thoughts that, as I don't in the least shrink now from noting, used to be with me in these wanderings was that it would be as charming as a charming story suddenly to meet someone.
p 15 The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
I am really enjoying this story. The language is long winded but delicious.
