"Teaser Tuesdays" February 1, 2011



 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I am currently reading "Vet In Harness" by James Herriot.

"I was sitting at the desk in the office at Skeldale House, writing up tuberculin testing forms when a young woman tapped on the door and walked in.

"I think I'm pregnant," she murmured shyly.

I looked up at her in some surprise. It was an unusual opening to a conversation and I didn't quite know how to reply. She was about my age and her demure attractiveness and rather prim style of dress didn't seem to belong to one so outspoken.  LP pg. 186.

  5. What a wonderful teaser! I read several of Herriot's books back in the '70s and enjoyed them all, although they tended to be very sad - all those sick and injured animals could be pretty disturbing. But I was tougher back then!
