Teaser Tuesday: 1-26-2010


TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
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 have given!
Please avoid spoilers!




A cutlass was suddenly a required accessory, and one could not stroll the Retail Embankment nor row down Marleybone High Causeway without hearing the squawk of parrots chattering on the shoulders of kerchiefed beaux. Games of chance and aquatic amusements such as the sea-lion rodeo were less and less in favour, replaced by sword fights, in which the men of the Station tested their mettle--though to come into combat with actual pirates would be the furthest thing from anyone's imagining. (Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Jane Austen and Ben H. Winters, p217)

I haven't read any of these Jane Austen Spinoffs. I really liked your teaser.

Thanks for the tease. I am just now trying to read the original so I can better appreciate the spin offs!

Hm, I've been hearing about this book a lot lately, but am a little skeptical. Sounds interesting from the teaser!
