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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Here goes! My Teaser Tuesday:
“The Henderson residents whom Alves interviewed characterized Audubon as ‘a man of scrupulous honesty’ who ‘placed the highest value possible upon his word, holding it in all things the equal of his bond.’ He was ‘somewhat of a connoisseur in his tastes,’ they thought, and ‘men took advantage of him’ because ‘he would go his whole length doing for others while his own was left undone.'” – pg. 115, John James Audubon: The Making of an American, by Richard Rhodes
Yup, besides changing ornithological painting and observation forever, Audubon was pretty baller.
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!
