Google+ The Introverted Reader: Where Are You and Teaser Tuesday

Where Are You and Teaser Tuesday

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

An adventure in reading wants to know where your reading has taken you this week.

Ken Follett's World Without End has taken me to Kingsbridge, England in the mid-1300s. This town built a Gothic cathedral in The Pillars of the Earth that might have looked similar to the one built around that time in Salisbury:

So far, in World Without End, the townspeople are trying to rebuild a bridge. This is the Notre-Dame Bridge in Mende, Lozère, France, built at about the right time.

Miz B of Should Be Reading wants a teaser from your book.

From page 8 of World Without End:

"The silence was broken by a terrible scream. Gwenda had been expecting it--Ma had explained what was going to happen during the service--but, all the same she was shocked. It sounded like someone being tortured."

Where has your reading taken you this week? Do you have a teaser to share?
