Tuesday’s Teaser

teasertuesdaysTEASER 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’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

From Philip Pullman’s The Ruby in the Smoke:

Since the death of Mr. Higgs, life at the office had grown dull. The feud between the porter and Jim the office boy had petered out, the porter having run out of hiding places and Jim having run out of penny magazines; he had nothing better to that afternoon, in fact, than to flick bits of paper, with an India rubber band, at the portrait of Queen Vicotria over the fireplace of the porter’s room.
