Teaser Tuesday: 30 June

Sir Owen’s was a sentiment I had certainly heard before. Men who did not know that I was the son of a stock-jobber frequently felt free to compliment me for having nothing to do with finance or Jewish customs, which were often imagined to be one and the same.

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!

It’s Monday! What’re You Reading?

June 30, 2009 at 12:15 am (Memes)

I have not been able to stick with a single book this week, and I don’t know why. After finally getting through Abundance the week previous, I finished re-reading The Oracle Glass several days ago. Since then, I have started A Factory of Cunning (which I accidentally left at my sister’s house last Thursday), Lord John and the Private Matter (the first chapters of which proved uninteresting), and A Conspiracy of Paper (tolerable so far). I also received a new copy of Black Alibi by Cornell Woolrich, which I am looking forward to as I’ve not yet read that one.

I did finally catch up on reviews for Abundance and The Oracle Glass, though, which is good, as I hate a backlog. This week, I hope to fnish at least ONE of the three I started, and I might start Villette by Charlotte Brontë for July’s reading.
