Teaser Tuesdays/These Is My Words

March 14, 1882

We have the beginning of a house put up. We have had a visit from a bear and Albert fired a shot at him but he thinks he missed. Even though there is no roof on top we have pitched our tent on the floor boards and it is good to sleep on something besides rocky ground. At the same time we are trying to build a house, it rained for three days and then cleared and feels like spring.

These is my Words: The Diary of Sarah Agnes Prine, 1881-1901 by Nancy Turner

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read

* Open to a random page

* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


  1. I had this from the library, but returned it unread. Just ran out of time! I'll look for your review to help me decide whether to check it out again!

  2. A visit from a bear, sleeping in a tent and rain for three days - and I thought I had things to complain about. Interesting.

  3. Joann - I read this several years ago and LOVED it. I'm rereading it for book club. I should have a review posted in another week or so.

    Christine - It's a fabulous book! This is my second reading and so far it's just as good as the first time around.

  4. Just finished it Leslie...loved it! It was definitely not what I had expected, but great nonetheless! Can't wait for next week.

  5. Rachel - I'm so glad to hear that you loved the book. I'm slowly re-reading it. Life just seems to keep getting in the way. I'm hoping to finish it by Monday!
