Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted at The Purple Booker.
Anyone can play along by doing 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!
“It was titillating to brush up against the enigma of mortality, to steal a glimpse across its forbidden frontier. Climbing was a magnificent activity, I firmly believed, not in spite of the inherent perils, but precisely because of them.”
(~ Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Everest Disaster by Jon Krakauer, Kindle Edition, 1997)
[One of the books the movie Everest has been based upon, it is a fascinating, even though not always objective, recount of what happened during that fateful May 1996. A reading I recommend to anybody interested in travel/exploration literature. ]
