Teaser Tuesday

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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


This week my teaser comes from a classic piece of literature.  I am reading this book to remove it from my book bucket list and for the mini challenge at Lazy Girl Reads' blog (something old).
Nothanger Abbey by Jane Austin

I have two that I found last night that I really like.  I will post both.  I am reading from my kindle so I do not have page numbers.  I do have the percentage of how far along I am in the book.

"You are a very close questioner."
"Am I? I only ask what I want to be told."
"But do you only ask what I can be expected to tell?"  57%

"And are you prepared to encounter all the horrors that  builidings such as 'what one reads about' may produce?  Have you a stout heart?  Nerves fit for sliding panels and tapestry? 59%
