Teaser Tuesday 6/15/2010

Spread the word

TEASER TUESDAYS 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!

My Two Teasers:

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver

Sociologists write about “the Disappearing Middle,” referring to both middle America and mid-sized operators: whole communities in the heartland left alarmingly empty after a decades-old trend toward fewer, bigger commodity farms. We are quicker to address our problems with regional rather than national solutions.

Not the most riveting two sentences from a book, not hey, what do you expect from a memoir about living off of sustainable foods from your very own farmland for a year?
