Afraid to say, I haven't moved around much over the last week. I'm still in London, trying to figure out what to do about that evil Count. (Dracula) Though Galileo just died, I still haven't left Italy. (The Scientists) I'm outside Petersburg, VA, feeling pretty miserable in this labyrinth of trenches. (The Civil War) And I just arrived in Liberia at a gorgeous home outside of Monrovia. (The House at Sugar Beach)
I always enjoy reading Melody's passages when she plays this, so I thought I'd join in today. After all, it fits in so perfectly on Tuesday's schedule. The "rules" set forth by our hostess at Should Be Reading, are as follows:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
From Dracula by Bram Stoker:
"There are such being as vampires; some of us have evidence that they exist. Even had we not the proof of our own unhappy experience, the teachings and the records of the past give proof enough for sane peoples...."
The Blame Game:
Only one point to award this week. I finally picked up a copy of Nation by Terry Pratchett last week. How could one not feel compelled to read it after Nymeth's incredible review?!! So yep, point to Nymeth.
