Teaser Tuesday: Living History

After long, hot days of shrubbing, I found some time to read.

Also, the heat wave broke, humidity reached 100%, and rain came down.

Oh, and the wheel of time has turned in its course to:

Teaser TuesdayJust 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 a few 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 Living History, by Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Not my usual fare; I’m reading the book for several reasons:

1. The book was free.

2. The subject will challenge me to keep an open mind.

3. I’ll be able to mark a square off my Book Bingo card.

Book Bingo Card 1Which square will I use? A biography of someone you dislike.

The Truly Random Number Generator sends us to page 200.

There was nothing to hide, so why not?
The story would mushroom for a while and then die.

Which story could it be?

There are so many possibilities!

In Retrospect

I finally finished The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova.

Bingo square: a book you started but never finished.

I gave it 3 stars for a slow start.

The ending, though . . . spectacular.

What have you been reading?
