Teaser Tuesday: Notes from a Small Island

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

At the far end of the room, there moved a pretty young nurse of clear and radiant goodness, caring for these helpless wrecks with boundless reserves of energy and compassion–guiding them to a chair, brightening their day with chatter, wiping dribble from their chins–and I thought, This is just the sort of person I need.
We were married sixteen months later in the local church, which I passed now as I made my way down Christchurch Road, shuffling along through papery leaves, under a tunnel of lofty boughs, humming the last eight bars of “Nell Gwyn”.

pg. 62 of Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

  1. Love Bill Bryson! There are days when I think someone who can guide me to a chair and pat me on the back is the sort of person I need, too. 🙂

    My teaser, from an unusual memoir that I’m liking a lot, is here!

    • Well, it’s not about them- it’s about Britain, so you might not want to pick this up if you’re expecting a love story! But it’s still pretty good.

      (And I love Westies! I have one myself- a ten year old named Charlemagne, who is the manliest little guy.)
