Teaser Tuesday (July 16 2013)

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!

My teasers:


“I think you said she was a widow, sir? Has she any family?”

“She has only one daughter, the heiress of Rosings, and of very extensive property”

Page 44 (Kindle edition) Pride & Prejudice byJane Austen. (UK Here)

    • I have found a problem with this though. Apparently it is supposed to say “Derbyshire” and the like, but instead it says “—–shire” in several places.

      • Yes, my kindle copy does that too! Since I have a total of 4 copies – hardback, special edition, etc of P&P it doesn’t bother me too much, because I know what should be there. Did you know it Disraeli read the book 17 times and referred to it constantly throughout his career. he felt it was the best book written on social commentary! Interesting, huh!

  1. As with every other romantic female – I LOVE THIS BOOK. And I know the exact scene your teasers came from. I also watch the movie at least once a month. Now I’m off to check out MizB’s blog. Sounds like a great place to find some good reads. Cheers
