Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Good morning! This week I'm rereading Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach. I bought this book at the gift shop of the hospital where my father was dying from cancer in 1981. I found it beautiful, lyrical and comforting. (It also made me wish I could fly!) Periodically over the years I have picked it up and reread it. This year I'm participating in the Rereadathon 2013 during the month of July, and figured this would be a perfect addition to my list.
Here's my teaser from page 81:
Then one day Jonathan, standing on the shore, closing his eyes, concentrating, all in a flash knew what Chiang had been telling him. "Why, that's true! I am a perfect, unlimited gull!" He felt a great shock of joy.
