Teaser Tuesdays {Jayber Crow}

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


My Teasers:

Jayber Crow"Athey was a storyteller too, as it took me some while to find out, for he never told all of any story at the same time. He told them in odd little bits and pieces, usually in unacknowledged reference to a larger story that he did not tell because (apparently) he assumed you already knew it, and he told the fragment just to remind you of the rest."

~ Location 3600-3604 kindle edition, Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry

Happy Tuesday all! This is such an interesting story. My cousin recommended it to me and so I decided to try it. It's not a gripping tale, but a story full of stories. So far I'm enjoying it! What are you reading right now? 


Toodle-loo kangaroos! Happy reading!
