Just to give you a break from WWII, this week's teaser is Something Completely Different: The Fundraising Houseparty!It's more of a booklet than a book, but very practical and helpful.
Here's the teaser:
Make sure that the Host is willing to invite friends and acquaintances. Because so many people are going to RSVP "no," be sure to invite three or four times as many people as you hope will eventually attend (e.g. if you want 20 people invite 60-80).
OK, so the plot's a little thin, but it's really useful information if you're part of a non-profit and need to do fundraising. If that describes you, I recommend it.
Meanwhile, back in WWII Paris, I've made it to 1941, so I've got quite a ways to go. It is a hard read for me, possibly because my concentration's shot after all the blogs I've been reading, possibly because I've never known anything about the French side of the war and the politics are hugely complicated. It took me I don't know how long to read one short chapter that involved a coup in the Vichy government. Whew! I have a couple of books waiting at the library; I may need to take a break, or at least sprinkle in some lighter fare. I'm going to be at this book for quite a while.
I'll be looking at your Teasers quite avidly today!
