School is now in full swing; I suppose my 1-book lead on my Goodreads Reading Challenge won’t last long.
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 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 Chaucer’s Tale: 1386 and the Road to Canterbury by Paul Strohm.
The Truly Random Number Generator sends us to page 134:
Not only would he [Chaucer] have had every incentive toward vice, but he was deprived of the rudimentary tools for maintaining virtue. . . . Rather surprisingly, and perhaps unaccountably, Chaucer seems to have realized little personal profit in a post normally occupied by egregious profit takers.
I’m just about done reading July 1914: Countdown to War by Sam McMeekin.
Why these three? I was tasked with writing a Veteran’s Day program in under 48 hours; I did it in 24.
Each book earned 5 stars, by the way, and are each well worth the read.

Facebook – where I share news stories, articles from other blogs, and various and sundry miscellany that happens to catch my eye. It’s stuff you won’t see here! Well, mostly.
Instagram – where I show you my Life in Motion and share quotes and such. The widget only shows my last three photographs – don’t you want to see them all?
Twitter – where you can see my thoughts in 140 characters or less. Also, funny retweets.
