Teaser Tuesday – 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

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 other participants know what you’re reading.

Today I’m reading 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne.

“These two dimensions allow you to obtain, via a simple calculation, the surface area and volume of the Nautilus.  Its surface area totals 1,011.45 square meters, its volume 1,507.2 cubic meters – which is tantamount to saying that when it’s completely submerged, it displaces 1,500 cubic meters of water, or weighs 1,500 metric tons.” (pg. 225 of 1,089 on Nook)
