Teaser Tuesday: May 8th



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme originally featured at Should Be Reading. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m currently re-reading The Handmaid’s Tale for the second time, the last time I’ve read this I was in the final year of the English Literature degree at the University of British Columbia – talk about a throwback. I remember reading it back then and thinking it was okay, but re-reading it now I wonder how I will feel? Here’s a little teaser for you!

“I would like to steal something from this room. I would like to take some small thing, the scrolled ashtray, the little silver pillbox from the mantel perhaps, or a dried flower: hide it in the folds of my dress or in my zippered sleeve, keep it there until this evening is over, secrete it in my room, under the bed, or in a shoe, or in the slit in the hard petit point FAITH cushion. Every once in a while I would take it out and look at it.” (99)
