Teaser Tuesdays (July 20)

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should be Reading.  My posts will consist of a “teaser” from whatever I’m currently reading.  Hopefully this might entice some of you to read some of the books I’m reading.  I’m still reading Emma, but I’m also attempting to read more than one book at a time.  I haven’t done this since college, so hopefully it works well.  I’ll be teaching 4 different English classes in the fall, so I’ve got to get used to it one way or another!  

Here is this week’s teaser:

“Now that he had recognized himself as a dead man it became important to stay alive as long as possible.  Two fingers of his right hand were ink-stained.” – p. 29, 1984 by George Orwell

This is one of the books my students are doing for summer reading so I am rereading it as well.  If you have never read it, I highly recommend it!
