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.
Play along: Grab your current read; Open to a random page; Share two teaser sentences from that page; Share the title and author so that other participants know what you’re reading.
I’m starting Savage Kingdom: The True Story of Jamestown, 1607, and the Settlement of America by Benjamin Wooley today. I’m trying to read at least one non-fiction book a month in 2011 and this is book one. I don’t know that non-fiction makes for the best teasers but let’s play anyway.
“On the morning of 20 September 1565, the sixty-year-old carpenter Nicolas le Challeux awoke to the sound of rain pelting down on the palm-leaf thatch overhead. It had not stopped for days, and a muddy morass awaited him outside.” (pg. 3)

Ooh, I’m sure he’s not looking forward to that muddy morass…thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.
Like your new look here!
(BTW, I love the new look of your blog!)
Thanks! It took me a while to decide what to do and finally get around to it. 🙂
Poor Nicolas! Weather like that gets depressing after a while, especially if you work outside. I like this teaser, it’s definitly interesting!
Savage Kingdom sounds like a fascinating book and definitely worth reading. I’m going to look it up and list it on my TBR list, too!
I hope you enjoy your book. Check out what my Tuesday Teaser is.
Happy Teaser Tuesday!!! My teaser this week is for Mistwood by Leah Cypess which is currently discount on Amazon for only $6.50 for a new hardcover copy!!! I posted a link to the price! Finally, a great fantasy book that really feels like the older fantasy novels written by favorites like Tamora Pierce and Sharon Shinn!
