teaser tuesday (22)

Tuesday, December 1, 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!

“It is, of course, easy to be wise with the benefit of hindsight, but from our vantage point it is now clear, that the only thing the population had to fear was fear itself. The true danger humanity faced during this period was the shrinking of its own spirit.

EXAMINER: Define spirit.”

-p. 7 of Bernard Beckett’s Genesis (ARC version)

Great teaser! I haven't heard of this book before, nor had I heard of someone being able to lock up their kitchen - oh my! I have a girlfriend that grew up in Spain, but her parents are American, so I really don't know that she ate any differently than I did as a kid.

I skipped TT this week - I'm still reading the same book I was reading last week. The holidays and finishing NaNoWriMo really put a crimp in my reading this past week.
