Teaser Tuesday

October 28, 2009

rebeccaTeaser 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 the book to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
  • I felt uncomfortable, a little shy. I did not know why she must speak with such resentment, implying as she did at the same time that this room, where I found myself to be installed, was something inferior, not up to the Manderley standard, a second-rate room, as it were, for a second-rate person.

    From page 76 of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca. I can’t believe that this quote showed up on a random page, since it encapsulates the exact tone of much of what I’ve read so far
