DDC reviews

I know that I have been slightly disorganized with the posting of reviews for the Dewey Decimal Challenge. I’m still getting the hang of running a challenge, and admit that I haven’t been able to put in as much time as I would like to perfect it. To abate the confusion, please post all reviews for the challenge in the comments section of this link. Thanks again for being so patient about this!

Teaser Tuesday (Mar 24th)

TEASER TUESDAYS, hosted by mizb17, asks you to: * Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! Please avoid spoilers!

Here are my two teasers:

Othello has also in recent years come to the attention of what are perhaps today’s most voracious consumers of Shakespeare, business professionals and motivational speakers. A wave of “Shakespeare on business,” “the Bard in the boardroom” books has hit the stands in recent years, and some of these draw their “real life” experience directly from Othello.
