Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays are hosted by MizB at Should be Reading, where you can also check out other blogger's links to their Teaser Tuesdays-posts.

The rules are simple:

Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!

Here is my teaser:

"It's poor Miss Annie next door. This morning she took a little fainting spell in the alley. Nerves, babe. She says you woke her up this morning playing on your banjo."

"That is a lute, not a banjo," Ignatius thundered. "Does she think that I am one of those perverse Mark Twain characters?"

The sentences are from p. 67 of A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole, which I am currently reading.

Can't wait to see your review. I remember being very taken with this book. Nice teaser.

It is so nice to have you back, Louise, and I have an award for you on my blog.

I can honestly say that that teaser makes me want to go grab this book off the shelf right now!

Thanks for your kind words all of you! Right now I am working on finishing the Mark Haddon book and after that I'll continue with Confederacy of D.
