Teaser Tuesday, February 15

Thanks to all of you with your fabulous book suggestions last week. I have since then completely replenished the paperback book supply with a visit to the White Elephant Sale, "the biggest, the best and certainly the most enjoyable rummage sale in Northern California." Two boxes full of cheap mystery goodness.

Right now, I'm reading Jeffrey Archer's Kane & Abel, which hits the spot, in a sweeping saga from the '70's kind of a way. Here's the teaser:

At night, back at the little wooden cottage, while the other children would tend their violets and poplars that bloomed so fragrantly in their springtime garden, pick berries, chop wood, catch rabbits or make dresses, Wladek read and read until he was reading the unopened books of his eldest brother and then those of his elder sister. It began to dawn slowly on Helena Koskiewicz that she had taken on more than she had bargained for when the young hunter had brought home the little animal in place of three rabbits; already Wladek was asking questions she could not answer.

Is that not a classic of its kind?

So what are you reading this week?
