Teaser Tuesday

I’m surprised it hasn’t happened before now – Teaser Tuesday, only I’m still on the same book as last week! Oh dear… It’s quite a big one and requires quiet and correct mood for me to read. So, this week we have more of Sense and Sensibility.

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!

“All her impatience to be at home again now returned; her mother was dearer to her than ever; dearer through the very excess of her mistaken confidence in Willoughby, and she was wildly urgent to be gone. Elinor, unable herself to determine whether it were better for Marianne to be in London or at Barton, offered no counsel of her own except of patience till their mother’s wishes could be known; and at length she obtained her sister’s consent to wait for that knowldge.”
-From Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility.

“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!
