teaser tuesday (7)

Tuesday, August 18, 2009 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!

“‘You won’t enjoy your lives much longer if you are going to try this idiotic adventure. Don’t set the office on fire,’ I said, ‘and go away before nine o’clock.’”

-p. 23 of Rudyard Kipling’s The Man Who Would Be King

Your teaser is a better example of what one should be than my own. A lot more interesting!
