Teaser Tuesday (17 May)

I fell asleep reading a book, and when I awoke...it was Teaser Tuesday!

The Haverfords had dispatched Maycomb's leading blacksmith in a misunderstanding arising from the alleged wrongful detention of a mare, were imprudent enough to do it in the presence of three witnesses, and insisted that the-son-of-a-bitch-had-it-coming-to-him was a good enough defense for  anybody. 

p. 5, To Kill a Mockingbird. Harper Lee

"I did it! I did it! With my own hands I did it!" I wanted to cry aloud.

p. 326, The Sea Wolf. From Tales of the North. Jack London.

  1. Both of those are excellent teasers! Loved Mockingbird when I read it many years ago - been thinking of re-reading it someday soon.

  2. I've been considering a reread of To Kill a Mockingbird this month myself. An excellent choice for a teaser! Mine: At Grave’s End
