Teaser Tuesday—March 24

Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

* Grab your current read.
* Let the book fall open to a random page.
* Share with us two (2) “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!

Please avoid spoilers!

My teaser this week comes from The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett. (It’s only one sentence, but I think it does the job!)

“The Queen has a slight cold” was what the nation was told, but what it was not told and what the Queen herself did not know was that this was only the first of a series of accommodations, some of them far-reaching, that her reading was going to involve.

Using any excuse to curl up in bed with a good book…that’s a real reader!

(Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Check it out for more teasers!)

    This book was such a fun read! Completely improbable but I can see why it has resonated so much with people who are readers!

    Thanks for stopping by, Marg! I agree that it’s completely improbable, but I like the thought of the Queen sneaking around and shirking her duties all in the name of finishing a book. Something all readers can relate to!
