Teaser Tuesday

I have been terribly absent from my blog for the biggest part of this month because I have been travelling, but now I am back! With the Olympics in the background I feel terribly inspired to do something creative. On another note, I reviewed the first two parts of the BBC's 'The Hollow Crown', but by now so much time has passed since they have been broadcasted that I am not going to make it a priority to review them.

So, on to the meme fun! Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading and you grab your current read and share a teaser without adding spoilers. I am reading 'Moby Dick or The Whale' by Herman Melville and I really desperately wanted to share this teaser with you.
'Once more. Say you are in the country; in some high land of lakes. Take almost any path you please, and ten to one it carries you down in a dale, and leaves you there by a pool in the stream. There is magic in it. '
It is from the 24th page and I absolutely love it. I myself absolutely love water and the sea and I definitely feel as if there is something magical about water, the way it cleanses you and is both soft and strong at the same time.

So, what book are you teasing us with? Please leave behind a link to your post in the comments so I can come and visit!

  8. Ooh nice tease! Haven't heard of this one!

    My tease was referencing Scooby Doo the cartoon show, particulary the The New Scooby Doo Movies series which always featured a celebrity in cartoon format with their real voice!
