For this week’s teaser, I am quoting an excerpt from Virgin Gingelly by V.Sanjay Kumar. In this excerpt, the protagonist is reading the following passage out loud from a book by Jeanette Winterson.
Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate.
It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind.
~ Virgin Gingelly by V.Sanjay Kumar
Whoa, I never thought that I could be perceived by non-book collectors as someone with a weak mind 😀 .
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!
