Teaser Tuesday (07-07-09 edition)

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!
Today's Teaser:

Dear God,
Sofia gone six months, Harpo act like a different man...
...He say, Miss Celie, I done learned a few things.
One thing he learned is that he cute. Another that he smart. Plus, he can make money. He don't say who the teacher is.

The Color Purple by Alice Walker (page 69)

I'm reading a classic right now as well, Middlemarch, but I definitely need to look into this one as well. Thanks for the tease.

I've read this book at least twice (and seen the movie twice). I hope you're enjoying it!
