A meme! a meme!

14 April 2010

It’s been a long time since this blog has played along in a meme, but lets hop back on the bandwagon with Teaser… Tuesdays? Hmmm, today’s a Wednesday… Ah well. I’m guessing I’ll usually be late so why not start off as I’ll probably continue :)

So, Teaser Tuesday, from Should be reading

  • 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!

This Wednesday mine is:

A Primate's Memoirs - Robert M. Sapolsky - pg.115
