For the Tuesday Teaser, we open our current book to a more-or-less random page, and then choose two sentences from it, and post them. These serve as “teasers” to entice other people to read the book as well. And of course, we don’t include any spoilers, i.e. things which might give away essential elements of the story’s plot.
This is a book meme hosted by MizB over at the ShouldBeReading blog. That’s where everyone posts links to their own teasers, so we can all peruse them and enjoy.
So. Here are my two sentences this week:
We all grinned, grateful for the break as the Professor strode over to check Corrigan’s notes. As Simpson and I made to deposit tissue samles in specimen jars and return the removed organs to the body, I noticed her eyes on me, but her gaze flitted quickly away.
p. 17 – The Anatomy of Deception by Lawrence Goldstone
I’m about 3/4 through the book, about a mystery that needs solving by a Philadelphia doctor in 1889. There’s a bit of a Sherlock Holmes air to it, and Goldstone really captures the attitudes of the time as well.
So that’s it! Head over to the ShouldBeReading blog if you enjoy this idea, and have a look at what others are reading today.
