Teaser Tuesday: 1984

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!

Reading this for Banned Book Week!

He had carried it guiltily home in his brief case. Even with nothing written in it, it was a compromising possession.

  1. I still need to finish that book! I started it and got about three chapters in before I ended up putting it down because I simply wasn’t in the mood for it.

Say something and make my day!
