teaser tuesday (79)

Tuesday, April 17, 2012 |

It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted every week by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:


Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page (or if you're reading on an electronic device, pick a random number and scroll to that section). Post two or more sentences from that page, along with the book title and author. Share your find with others in the comments at Should Be Reading, and don't give anything vital away!


“He worked in a shabby bookstore that was crammed every crack with old things, and his job was to straighten the books that people brought to get rid of or trade or sell. He liked to read the ones that nobody came for; he didn’t understand all of what they said, but he read them just in case. He liked the way they made the world tilt different ways in his vision.”

Oh my oh my! Oh dear, oh darling! I was two words in when I desperately realized I wanted to read this, the rest of the paragraph mangled my want and morphed it into a need. Thank you for bringing this to light.

Love this line. And I think I want to own this shop she speaks of. Sounds splendid.

I love your teaser, especially "... tilt different ways in his vision." Is that another way of saying the books made him look at things differently?
My teaser this week is from Untying the Knot

That is a lovely quote about reading and how it changes people's perception of the world.
