Teaser Tuesday is an intriguing meme started by Miz B over at Books and a Beat.
All you have to do is:
• 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week’s offering comes from a book I just finished reading, Alastair Reynold’s HOUSE OF SUNS, a sweeping space opera that encompasses both space and time, since the characters are long-lived people who spend their lives traveling across the galaxy, gathering knowledge that they store and trade as a very useful commodity.
We did have almost everything we could dream of. We had lived for millions of ears, crossed the galaxy countless time over, drunk from the riches and glories of ten million cultures. […] Entire civilizations owed their existence to our good deeds, unwitnessed and uncommemorated. We did marvelous, saintly things and we never stopped to ask for thanks.
Intriguing, isn’t it?
