Teaser Friday!

Okay, in the great tradition of Teaser Tuesdays, I bring you an the end-of-the-week special: Teaser Friday!

For those of you new the club, I’ve opened up the books I’m currently reading to random pages and picked a good two sentences found on said random page between lines 7 and 12. Arbitrary? Yes. Fun? Heck yeah!

“These two-hours visits I made every two or three days to the Merhamet Apartments I hid not just from Sibel–it was as if I was hiding from myself as well, which may be why I came to believe I was reducing my suffering to a manageable condition.”
–From Orhan Pamuk’s The Museum of Innocence

“As truth bound upon the conscience by an oath can be but truth, so in the common affirmations of the shop and the market-place a latitude is expected, and conceded upon questions wanting this solemn convenant. Something less than truth satisfies.”
–From Charles Lamb’s Essays of Elia

“She recognized this trait all to well, the blithe urgency to get on with being a couple before the constituent parts and workings of coupledom had been established. She had been there before.”
–From Julian Barnes’ England, England

So what are you all reading? Give me a snippet!

    “It was true that, during the last three or four weeks, she had absented herself from Bellomont on the pretexts of having other visits to pay; but now she began to feel that the reckoning she had thus contrived to evade had rolled up interest in the interval.” — Edith Wharton, The House of Mirth.

    Not terribly interesting, but there you have it!

      You’ve inspired me to get some classic fiction out of the library!
