Books: It's Meme Time Again…

Posted 24 January, 2009 by Li in Meme / 1 Comment

A bit behind again, but anyways…

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
– Grab your current read.
– Let the book fall open to a random page.
– Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
– You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!

Should Be Reading

My teaser: “And although we continued our habit of meeting for cocoa in the evening, the sessions tended to be brief and unfriendly. When there had been no sign of her behaviour abating after a fortnight or so, I think you will understand that I started to become a little impatient.” – p. 154, The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro

Since “Inspiration” is (or should) the theme this week … what is your reading inspired by?

Booking Through Thursday

Good question…I guess what I read depends on my mood. After I read a classic (i.e. Dickens’s Expectations), I’ll likely be in need of a change of pace, like something light-hearted (i.e. Fielding’s Bridget Jones’s Diary) or action-packing (anything by Steve Berry). Sometimes after I read something profound and intense (like Zafon’s The Shadow of the Wind), I’ll be on the lookout for books that could have a similar affect on me or a similar theme. And sometimes I’ll pick up a book when I see an interesting period drama or movie that was based on a book 🙂
