Teaser Tuesday

Well I am still on the same book that I have been reading for the last two weeks. I don't know why but historical fiction and non fiction books always seem to take me twice as long to read as other books. It's not that I don't enjoy the books any less or or that I don't find them interesting... they just take me longer to get through for some reason.

So this week I decided to share some teasers from a book that I currently dip in and out of. Which given that it is a collection of stories rather than one makes it easy to start and stop.

So what you have to do to take part in Teaser Tuesday is simple:

• 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!
 
Then head over to Should Be Reading to add your link to the comments. 

So my teasers for the week are:

'Yes, a queer mongrel, with a most amazing power of scent. I would rather have Toby's help than that of the whole detective force of London.'

Page 126, The Sign Of Four - The Complete Stories Of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Michelle - I got rid of the actual GFC thing because I got sick of it disappearing - but I think if you click on the posts tab under 'You know you want to subscribe' there's an option for Google. It should then give you the option of either Google homepage or Google reader...

Or you can add the blog manually to blogger or Google reader :)
