*catches breath* I hit the ground running the moment I set foot in the office today, and haven't had any free time since, so... just taking time to post a few words before I leave the office for a day and have dinner with a friend.
Another oldie but a goodie. [I seem to be posting nothing but oldies-but-goodies nowadays. Hrm.] Ever since I read Lady of Quality at the age of 12, Georgette Heyer has been a particular favorite of mine. This book is rather old-fashioned in tone, but I'm liking it so far.

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!
