Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. The idea is to give everyone a look inside the book you’re reading.

1.) Grab your current read

2.) Open to a random page

3.) Share two teaser sentences from that page

4.) Share the title and author so that other participants know what you’re reading.

I haven’t had much time to read the last few days but I’m hoping a few things will clear up by the end of the week that will open up a bit more time. My teaser this fine Tuesday morning comes from The Greenlanders by Jane Smiley. It’s a bit dense (most of the book reads pretty much the same of the teaser below) but I’m willing to give it a go and I’m hoping it picks up soon.

“The Monk Nicholas stayed with Ivar Bardarson during the winter and the next, and all of this time he was making measurements and notations with the instruments he had brought. The English sailors thought little of the Greenlanders at first, and especially disliked the meat and other foods they had to eat, for, they said, dried meat was no substitute for bread, and milk was no substitute for wine and beer, which the English sailors were much accustomed to.”

The Greenlanders by Jane Smiley, page 41 – 42.
