I decided to do a Teaser Tuesday because I’m way behind on reviews but I’m continuing to read ahead anyway. For Teaser Tuesdays, open your current read to a random page and share two “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
So here is my tease:
“It transpired that with no prior notification to her attendants the Queen had abandoned her long-standing lines of inquiry- length of service, distance travelled, place of origin- and had embarked on a new conversational gambit, namely, ‘What are you reading at the moment?’ To this very few of Her Majesty’s loyal subjects had a ready answer (though one did try: ‘The Bible?’).”
p. 40 of The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
What are you reading? Can you give us a tease?
