Thanks to the Purple Booker for the loan of this meme

The idea of the Tuesday Teaser is to copy a few lines from where you are currently reading and tempt or tease someone else into adding it to their TBR pile.

My Tuesday Teaser for Tuesday, August 3rd is from Close to the Bone, a murder mystery in which the lead investigator finds her sister to be the prime suspect. Her sister has done an unspeakable thing, but is she capable of murdering the man who forced her to do it?

“Anger leads to violence against others [;] shame leads to violence against oneself.”

I have just read a few chapters, but can’t wait to get back to my Kindle to continue.

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."
