Teaser Tuesdays: At Home

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!

At Home: A Short History of Private Life by Bill Bryson p. 70
"If we were to step into the kitchen of the rectory in 1851, a number of differences would strike us immediately. For one thing, there would have been no sink."

So far, Mr. Bryson is up to his old, wonderful tricks: tons of random facts, mixed in with humor. Yay!

I really need to read one of his books. I know I have at least one on my bookshelf waiting to be read.

Here is my teaser from The Wolves of Andover by Kathleen Kent (Page 8):

Martha saw it all clear in that moment: this was the instant her place in the family would be decided. If she lost her footing at the outset, she would forever be dealt with as no more than a servant.

No sink! Where did they do the dishes? I thought there were sinks...just had to cart the water in.
