Teaser Tuesdays (7.27.10)

 
MizB of Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesday. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
 Here's a tease of what I am currently reading:


Bernard himself seemed unfazed by these setbacks. He'd begun the grand work of his life: to spread the knowledge of yoga in his native land, organizing devotees and initiates into an ambitious national network of lodges.
From The Great Oom: The Improbable Birth of Yoga in America by Robert Love, pg. 34

Please leave a comment with a link to your teaser so I can stop by.

  1. Is that a nonfiction book?
    My Teaser today is from a fiction book set in Ancient China, which reads like fairy tale fantasy.

  8. I've always thought yoga was interesting but I've never tried it before. This sounds like a great book to give as part of a yoga-themed gift basket though!

    Here's mine

  10. It's not a book I think I'd chose to read but I'm intrigued by the teaser.

    Mine's from Devil to Pay, a book I wrote.
