This week my teaser is from Fugitive Pieces by Anne Michaels, page 156:
...my hands remembered the crazed and embossed leathers, corners eroded to board, paperbacks soft from the sea air. And slipped between books, newspaper clippings fragile as mica. When I was young I searched among them for the one book that would teach me everything, just as I would look for one language, just as some would look for one woman's face. There's a Hebrew saying: Hold a book in your hand and you're a pilgrim at the gates of a new city.
It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.
I started out in Biskupin, Poland; was rescued from the Nazis and taken to Zakynthos, Greece. Then we moved to Toronto. I'm now back in Greece on the island of Idhra.
