Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
“They walked and walked, at first along tiled and bleakly lit corridors under electric lighting, and then along dusty carpets in dark shuttered places, and up a stone staircase and then further up a winding wooden stair, cloudy with dark dust. Maud and Roland neither looked nor spoke to each other.”
Possession, p 81

I am starting this book tonight as I only finished Wolf Hall last night (all 650 pages). A.S. Byatt is a new author for me and I am looking forward to trying something new. The edition that I have is a part of a series published in 2009 of prior year Booker Prize Winners.
Thanks for stopping by and please excuse the way I have headed up this post …. guess who is an accountant who likes to keep things in order ?
