Tuesday Teaser

“Tuesday Teaser is a bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker” which I read every Tuesday.  Bloggers from all over (and those who read blogs) grab their books, choose two or so random sentences, and copy them down in the effort to perhaps interest someone else in the book they are reading. How about participating here? Be careful not to include spoilers, but list your Tuesday Teaser in the comments below.  Here’s mine for today:

“I touched his shoulder again, and Rowdy flinched.

Yes I touched him again.

What kind of idiot was I?

The kind that got punched hard in the face by his best friend.”

This is from The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, a YA novel I tried once upon a time, gave up on, but am trying again because it is the monthly selection of my Third Tuesday Book Club at the local library.  Once I got over the language in the first chapter, I have to admit, I’m enjoying it. (Or perhaps the language has become more common, and thus more acceptable over time.) What’s your Tuesday Teaser?

This year marks my fiftieth year in AAUW (American Association of University Women). The Alvin chapter was begun in 1947, and as a new, green teacher to Alvin Independent School District, I joined in 1968. In the 80's we began a book group to share our love of reading, books,and fellowship with other women and girls who loved the same. We resurrected the group on-line in September of 2015. Eventually Powerful Women Readers folded as an on-line book club, but I kept the title and turned it into a blog. (See "Introduction,"first blog). This is my first experience at blogging or publishing anything and is becomes more fun with each blog posted. I am currently teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This makes my 28th year there after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.
