Teaser Tuesday 05-26-09: Three Junes

Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read (without spoilers, of course) to entice you to read the book.

From Three Junes by Julia Glass, page 122 :
My flat, though clean, was furnished with carelessly mingled things I'd purchased mostly in charity shops (in Brooklyn, not Quezaltenango). Politely, Mal began his first visit perusing my bookshelves, Felicity touring along on his shoulder. I learned, with minimal gratification, that he was not well read and not at all sorry about it.

It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.

I'm dividing my time between New York, Dumfries, Scotland and Naxos, a Greek island. I'm also going back and forth through time, the 1980s and 1990s and a bit of post WWII.

Bookshelves are a bit like medicine cabinets. You can get a pretty good idea of the person and their likes but what is on their book shelf.

You must have climbed out of bed and done this first thing! Even with me being home sick you still managed to beat me LOL

Lovely teaser.Sounds almost whimsical.

Sounds like an interesting book. I love it when an author can mix in different times in the story, but only when it flows well!

I LOVED this book. It's my favorite of the three I've read of hers (The Whole World Over was good, and the most recent one, I See You Everywhere, was very ambitious and beautiful, but I still like Three Junes the best).
