teaser tuesday (86)

Tuesday, July 3, 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!

the long earth by terry pratchett and stephen baxter book cover“At last Sarah stumbled towards him and clamped herself on him. ‘Where are we?’

‘Somewhere else, I guess.  You know.  Like Narnia.’

The moonlight showed him the tears pouring down her face and the snot under her nose, and he could smell the vomit on her nightdress. ‘I never stepped into no wardrobe.’

p. 25 of Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter’s The Long Earth (ARC version, subject to change)

Interesting teaser! Been curious whether or not to check out this novel since I love Terry Pratchett's Discworld series and this sounds pretty different.

Here are my teasers for this week =)

Sounds terrific, but Terry Prachett is involved so that's a no-brainer.
