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!

“Edward had been staying several weeks in the house before he engaged much of Mrs. Dashwood’s attention; for she was, at that time, in such affliction as rendered her careless of surrounding objects. She saw only that he was quiet and unobtrusive, and she liked him for it.”

from Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility (Penguin Classic edition, p18)

…I’ll also have you know that the edition pictured is the edition I have. I have a little collection of the super lovely hardcover Penguin Classics, with these amazing canvassy covers. They’re great!
