Teaser Tuesdays (Feb 17)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading
(though I got it from DebraB at Booking It )

Anyone 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!

My Teasers:

Soldiers really are an extraordinary race of men, as tough as shield-leather, as superstitious as Egyptians and as sentimental as Sabine Grandmothers. Ten minutes later there were about two-thousand men besieging Germanicus's tent in a drunken ecstasy of sorrow and repentance and imploring him to let his lady come back with their darling little boy.

(p. 181, from   I, Claudius by Robert Graves

  1. I have this book ready to listen to on my IPod. I guess I need to get started!

    1. I'll probably finish it today or tomorrow and post my review shortly thereafter. It's quite interesting.

  2. Aaah I'm slowly reading 'I, Claudius' as well and, although it is taking me ages because I keep interrupting my reading with different books, I am loving it. Thanks for reminding me I should get back to it! Thanks for sharing :) Hope you have a great week!
