Teaser Tuesday: Founding Brothers

Winter break has ended and school has started again.

The New Year hit the ground running, and 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 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.

I’ve currently read six books out of the 100 in my Goodreads Challenge.

I’ve actually settled down a bit, and [gasp] I’m only reading one book this week – that’s right, I’m not reading multiple titles at the same time. What is this New Year coming to?

This week’s book is Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation by Joseph J. Ellis. The Truly Random Number Generator send us to page 37:

But the looming threat of possible injury and
perhaps even death did tend to focus [Hamilton's]
mind on the downside of his swashbuckling style.  
He was less suicidal than regretful, less fatalistic 
than meditative.

    1. Congratulations on starting your blog! TBH, I probably wouldn’t read your Teaser as romances aren’t my thing. But if we all read the same thing, the world would be a boring place.
