Tuesday Teaser

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 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.
