Tuesday Teaser again



Teaser Tuesday
The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” 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!

And non-fictional this week:
This is the letter of an exasperated woman, but not of one who is afraid to speak her mind. And indeed Francesco himself, in his better moments, had come to admit that in household matters his wife's judgement was as good as his own.
Iris Origo's The Merchant of Prato hard nosed commerce in the Middle Ages.

(yes I know I promised a review of The Book Thief - which I've now completed - the book not the review!! - I'm working my way towards it!!)

So the men were pompous in the Middle Ages too, huh? Ha ha - good teaser - doesn't sound like non-fiction - written like a good story. Also would be interested to know if you liked The Book Thief - it is on my to read shelf.
