Along with my 30th Birthday, the Wheel of Time has brought ’round
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.
In terms of reading, I haven’t left the Renaissance, but I have traded nonfiction for historical fiction.
This week, I’m reading The Relic Master a work of historical fiction by Christopher Buckley featuring one of my favorite Northern Renaissance artists, Albrecht Dürer, and a plot to forge a relic for his patron – a relic known to us as the Shroud of Turin.
The Truly Random Number Generator sends us to page 264:
The Duke reached inside his cloak and produced a large key. The archdeacon produced a second key. Two archbishops wearing miters appeared from behind a curtain. Each in turn produced a key. Dismas eliminated any notion of obtaining four separate keys from four different people.
The plot thickens!
I’ve just about finished Heretics and Heroes: How Renaissance Artists and Reformation Priests Created Our World by Thomas Cahill and have found it intriguing, engrossing, and otherwise enjoyable. No spoilers on the star-rating, though; you’ll have to come back next week (or keep track of me on Goodreads)
I’m not sure what will be next, but I plan to have a number in mind for the 2016 Goodreads Challenge.
