Teaser Tuesday: 1916: The Easter Rising

Once again the wheel of time has turned to

Teaser Tuesday

Just in case you don’t know, Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! All you have to do is grab the book you’re currently reading, open to a random page and share two sentences from that page. But make sure you don’t share any spoilers!*

*I wish I could take credit for this introduction, but I shamelessly stole it from Heather over at bitsnbooks. To help me make amends, you should go check out her blog.

This week I’m reading 1916: The Easter Rising by Tim Pat Coogan. I’ve had the book for several years but never tried reading it until I started a MOOC on Ireland between 1912 and 1923.

Redmond Howard, a politically aware witness to the 
Rising and a critic of the rebels, wrote in its 
aftermath: 'There never was, I believe, an Irish 
crime -- if crime it can be called -- which had 
not its roots in an English folly.

Irish history is not my forte; hence my reason for taking the class.

Perhaps I’ve whetted your appetite!

In Retrospect

I haven’t yet finished The Long Mars, but it’s proving quite enjoyable.

In case you missed it, here’s my 5-Star review of Amanda Palmer’s Art of Asking.
