Teaser Tuesdays: February 3, 2009

tuesday-t Miz B and Teaser Tuesdays asks you to: Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

“Teacher Gu’s first marraige had lasted three years, and what he remembered, afterward, was many of their intellectual talks.  Even on their honeymoon they had spent more time reading and discussing Kant than enjoying the beach resort.”

This made me laugh because I remember reading about the wedding of at least two bloggers (Hello, Trish and Jen!) who did quite a bit of reading on their honeymoons!  Hopefully your marriages will last longer than this one!
