The idea is to grab what you are currently reading and copy a couple of sentences chosen at random. Be sure to include the title and author of the “read.” No spoilers, please.  Come on, friends, let’s have a little participation here! Leave a comment saying you are posting it on your blog at… or if you don’t have a blog type the teaser, title and author in the comments box.

Today’s Tuesday Teaser from Cornelia Funke’s Inkheart:

“Maggie” (the twelve year old protagonist whose father is a bookbinder and collector, who was addressed the night before by the name, Silverthroat, by a mysterious man, who pounded on their door at midnight in the pouring rain and warned her father of danger to them both)  “woke up because it was so quiet. The regular sound of the [van’s] engine that had lulled her to sleep had stopped. The driver’s seat beside her was empty. It took Maggie a little while to remember  why she wasn’t in bed at home.”…”The van was parked outside an iron gate made of spearheads just waiting to impale anyone who tried to clamber over it.”

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 have just completed 30 years of teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This is after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District, adding up to a total of teaching 50 years in all. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.
