Teaser Tuesday

Today i'm posting my first contribution to the weekly meme Teaser Tuesday, where all of us book bloggers get together to try and encourage you guys to read some fantastic books. Basically, to participate all you have to do is grab a copy of your latest book, open a random page and pick any quote you like. You can post two of these 'teasers', although of course please try to avoid massive spoilers!

So, i am currently rereading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, something i'm sure the vast majority of people have already read and adored. For my two teasers i've picked:

'We shall see, we shall see!' he said, 'and I think I have earned already some of your dragon-gold - when you have got it.' (Page 106)

'Thief, thief, thief! Baggins! We hates it, we hates it, we hates it for ever!' (Page 81)

The Hobbit

This is the cover of the book i was given, it's a copy of an illustration done by Tolkien himself of Smaug.

So what are you reading this fine tuesday? Leave a comment and let me know!

  2. With the introduction of Kara to the series it seems fendi outlet at first that the creators of the show added yet another piece of eye candy. Already the cast has a slew of beauties for Clark to save. Laura Vandervoort rolex submariner replica performance at the beginning was incredibly hollow. Perhaps this is because of her lack of experience or that she is joining http://www.dibaq.com/read.html a cast that already has a deep rooted history. Whatever the reason her first few episodes and story lines are bothersome. Clark assuming the role of protector is expected but it is the role reversal that makes Vandervoort scenes worth while. Clark is now teaching her to blend in and accept Smallville as her http://www.ventnorcity.org/tmp.html home. All the while Clark is becoming more of the hero we expect. Kara storylines and subplots eventually work themselves out and Vandervoort does http://www.55kipcenter.org/sitemap.html earn her stripes to join the cast as a regular character.
