What are we talking about today?

Some days have themes. I don't necessarily post something in each of these topic areas every week.

Sunday: Church-related or spiritual things.
Monday: Running.
Tuesday: Books.

Teaser Tuesday #13

(Some days, I'm not sure I should bother writing books, because everyone else is so good at it. This is one of those days.)

The Strictest School in the World: Being the Tale of a Clever Girl, a Rubber Boy and a Collection of Flying Machines, Mostly Broken, Howard Whitehouse

They were both quiet for a moment, the professor missing his steam engine and Rab wondering if there was any cake to be had.

"Size small! Cork inserts, rubber bodysuit, propellers on the feet that flip back when not in use, belt for lashing yourself to suitable wreckage. No cigars, though."

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be ReadingAnyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

What's great is that they are just as funny in context. :)

I can't place a teaser this week because I'm still reading the same book as last week - no time!!!

But I totally know what you mean about not bothering to write because everyone else is so good at it - so many talented authors out there it's intimidating! (But it sure makes for great reading if you can put aside the intimidation factor :))

No worries; I'm not going to stop reading anytime soon! :)
