Teaser Tuesdays


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

· Grab your current read

· Open to a random page

· share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

Be sure 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!

“The wind in the wires is like the tearing of soft silk under the blended drone of engine and propeller. Time and distance together slip smoothly pas the tips of my wings without sound, without return, as I peer downward over the night-shadowed hollows of the Rift Valley and wonder if Woody, the lost pilot, could be there, a small human pinpoint of hope and of hopelessness listening to the low, unconcerned song of the Avian—flying elsewhere.”

--From West With the Night, by Beryl Markham

Bookish coincidence. I am about to start reading West With the Night.
Today I am reading Doc, by Mary Doria Russell:
"Dodge didn't have a city hall. Generally, the saloon owned by whoever was mayor served that purpose, which made the Alhambra the seat of government for now."
