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!)

You might already know that I am pretty obsessed with Bill Bryson. He’s definitely one of my favourite authors as his writing style is so unique. He can make any subject entertaining and you find yourself going through his book at record speed because you really can’t put them down. So here is another small sample from the latest book by him that I’m currently reading The Road to Little Dribbling: More Notes from a Small Island.

That is the nub of it really…If you suggest to any British person that there is anything odd or irregular about any part of a British system – let’s say, just for the sake of argument, about weights and measures – they get instantly iffy and say, ‘I don’t know what you are talking about.'” (185-188)
