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 (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
