Teaser Tuesday ~ Into the Beautiful North (with a side of Ulysses)

June 16, 2009

teaser-tuesdayTeaser 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!

After some deliberation regarding how I should celebrate Bloomsday, I thought that, perhaps, the best way to incorporate Ulysses into the blog for today would be to add it to Teaser Tuesday! I have also included my regularly scheduled program reading.

“Hanging over the bloody paper with Alf looking for spicy bits instead of attending to the general public. Picture of a butting match, trying to crack their bloody skulls, one chap going for another with his head down like a bull at a gate.”  Ulysses by James Joyce   p. 328

“Tacho plunged into the darkest clump of shadow and prayed he didn’t step on a rattlesnake or fall into a pit full of tarantulas. Atomiko had completely vanished.”  Into the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urrea   p. 141

What’s your teaser this week?

    Wow – Tuesday is looking quite ominous.
    My Tuesday Teasers that I posted on my blog was from Crime and Punishment:
    ““Never before had he seen or heard such unnatural noises, such howling, screaming, snarling, tears, blows, and curses. He could never even have imagined such beastliness, such frenzy.”
