Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
- Grab your current read.
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
- You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
“He did not want to compose another Quixote – which is easy – but the Quixote itself. Needless to say, he never contemplated a mechanical transcription of the original; he did not propose to copy it.”
-From “Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote” in Jorge Luis Borges’ Labyrinths

Labyrinths is one of my favourite books. I re-read it when I can, and have those reader-writer/writer-reader moments where I literally stare at the page, breathe out in wowness, and wish I was Borges.
