Tuesday Teaser is a meme hosted by The “Purple Booker,” which I first discovered on a friend’s blog, “Brainfluff.” The point is to grab what you are currently reading, copy a sentence or two from where you left off, hopefully teasing someone into reading the book. Once again, I am using Roland Merullo’s Breakfast with Buddha:
“For all that morning, I’d managed to put out of my thoughts the notion of handing over this property (his family’s farm that he grew up on as a child) to Rinpoche (a holy man). On the one hand, it seemed patently absurd for him to start a venture here, and for my sister to give away the only security that life would ever hand her.”
Whether the siblings give away , to this holy man? charlatan?, their family inheritance is something you will have to read the book to find out.

This year (2019) finds me with 50 plus 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."
