Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

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!

The Third Chimpanzee: The Evolution & Future of the Human Animal by Jared Diamond p. 61

"We are unusual in having sex mainly in private and for fun, rather than mainly in public and only when the female is able to conceive. Ape females advertise the time when they are ovulating; human females conceal it even from themselves."

This is the tidbit that was told me that got me reading this book! So I thought it might work for you all too.

Wow - interesting! I've read another Diamond book, Blood, Germs and Steel (I think?), and it was good. Hope you're liking this one!

If you'd like, you can check out my teaser here.
