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!
Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff p. 64
"Caesar would have been well served by throwing her over, if only to obtain a temporary truce. And he would have been within his rights at war's end to annex Egypt; Cleopatra must have been very, very persuasive."

So far this biography is very readable with fascinating, random facts. and how much do I love an ARC with not only the photo inserts, but COLOR photo inserts? Way to raise the bar, Little, Brown!

Brilliant teaser. I have read a few books on Cleopatra and will be adding this one to my list. Thanks. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/06/teaser-tuesdays-heart-of-lies.html
