Teaser Tuesdays – August 30, 2011


While I Live by John Marsden

It’s natural: after riding up to the gates of death on a four wheel motorbike and then racing away again, you want to go over and over it with anyone you can. But I couldn’t talk about it in front of Bronte, although for all I knew she could be a member of Liberation too.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Now and again we vary the route; there’s nothing against it, as long as we stay within the barriers. A rat in a maze is free to go anywhere, as long as it stays inside the maze.

    I’m trying to convince my book club to read Handmaid. One of the guys thinks it would be too political. I beg to differ.

      Melissa – I just need to find more time to read it. I’ve been crazy-busy – not a lot of reading time this week.
