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!
I'm adapting the rules slightly. I'll be quoting some random lines from the last chapter I read before I post a teaser. I'm a slow reader, so you may get multiple teasers per book. Here's my second teaser from King John:
'Do you know,' says the biographer of William Marshal, 'why King John was unable to keep the love of his people? It was because Lupescar maltreated them, and pillaged them as though he were in enemy territory.' This was no mere idle gossip. It is easy to understand how the Normans felt when the abbess of Caen can be seen offering the king 40 marks for protection against Lupescar and for having him restore what had been taken from herself and from the tenants of the abbey's estates.
From King John, by W.L. Warren, p 91
(Yes, I'm reading this book very slowly. That's because I'm stopping to make research notes in nearly all the margins!)
If you'd like to share a teaser from a book you're currently reading, I'd love you to do so in the comment section. And you don't even have to share it on a Tuesday! Be sure to include the title, author, and page number in case others would like to check out the book you're reading.
