OMG it's Tuesday again. I hit the ground running the moment I got to the office this morning and here it's time to go home and I've yet to catch my breath. So I'll make this quick.
This is another oldie but goodie from a favorite author... another non-Pollifax book from Dorothy Gilman. How that woman can write. So beautiful.
"Long ago, or so it seemed to me now, I had listened to the sound of drums echoing through the canyons of the Hoggar Mountains--that dark haunted fortress of the Tuareg-- and hearing them I had often shivered. Bakuli said they were talking drums, but where I came from people didn't talk with drums, they sent messages Western Union, or by mail, or they rang a doorbell."
--p. 115, Caravan by Dorothy Gilman
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!
