Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme, hosted at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page along with the title & author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
    Ready for a tease? Here it is:

  • p.125  "From now on the letters were all typed, and Lily found she missed the grandeur of the writing, the swirls and loops of the black ink. She was used to straining for meaning of a too hurriedly drawn words, missed the satisfaction that came to her when she'd deciphered something she'd first thought impossibly unclear."         ---from The Sea House by Esther Freud

I like deciphering handwriting, too. No one ever handwrites anything. I don't even write my grocery list anymore!

The teaser doesn't seem to match the title of the book (which I LOVE), but it makes me wonder who wrote the letters and who they wrote them to.

I adore the descriptiveness of your teaser.

Nice teaser, although I'm not sure I agree with her. I like computers *g*

Thanks for stopping by my teaser.

Great teaser! Isn't it a shame that we don't hand write letters anymore? It's computer or email or text. And then it's some half, cryptic words to we still have to decipher!!
