Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Grab a book you are reading, open to a random page and pull two sentences. Post the book title, author, and page number. No spoilers, please. 😉
The Quirky Girls are reading a wide variety of books and want to tease you and, hopefully, pique your interest. Here they are:
“Most of us would not imagine any correspondence between conceiving an ethnic genocide and, say, guiltlessly lying to one’s boss about a coworker. But the psychological correspondence is not only there; it is chilling.” From The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout (page 16 Nook edition)
From Molly/The Bumbles:
“There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness.” Taken from Kobo e-reader – exact page unknown – Chapter 117 (The Fifth of October) of the book The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
“According to the St. George Register, on a clear night last June, at some time between eleven and half-past, my mom-who isn’t anything like this-tiptoed down to the basement of the house I grew up in with a Big Boy .44 Magnum in her hands. At the foot of the stairs she knocked on the door to my dad’s den.” From The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff
“It was a little like the way I was when I was home with an infant and would go out to a party. I was crazed by human contact, chatting relentlessly, comscious that before long I would be back to my cage.” From Every Last One by Anna Quindlen (page 90)
And that’s what we’re reading. What are you reading this week?
