Tuesday Teaser



Tuesday Teasers is hosted by Should Be Reading. The rules are as follows:


Grab your current read and let the book fall open to a random page. Share two sentences somewhere between lines 7 and 12 and the title of the book that you’re getting the teaser from. Please avoid spoilers! Read the official Tuesday Teaser Rules.


My teaser this week is more of a quote than anything else. But it so perfectly describes me and I suspect, more than a few other bloggers out there. This quote is taken from an out-of-print book titled Robert Blatchford's Calendar by Robert Williamson. I could not find a cover picture of the book anywhere and since the book belongs to a customer of our bookstore I can't post my own photo of it, but here's the quote:

"A book lover loves her books and covets the books of her neighbours. She likes to caress them. She likes to arrange them and rearrange them. She likes to stand in her treasure house and bathe in the pride of ownership. She likes to place her pets in lines upon shelves and read the title."


Mind you, the more I re-read it the more neurotic I sound!
