I'll try to catch up later this week--and also post my Campaigner Challenge for the Fourth Platform-Building Campaign.
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
Rules for participating:
- 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!
This week, my teaser is from Flatterland by Ian Stewart. It's fiction, but heavily uses math and incorporates some . . . interesting/amusing ideas, like Space Hoppers and Virtual Unreality Engines. It is also the sequel (albeit by a different author) of Flatland by Edwin Abbott Abbott. And yes, that is his name.
"What's happening is that when a peak of one set of semicircles meets a peak of the other set of semicircles, the two peaks add up to make an even higher peak; and when a trough of one set of semicircles meets a trough of the other set of semicircles, the two troughs add up to make an even lower trough. And if a peak meets a trough, they cancel out and the result is in between."
What are you reading right now? Got a teaser to share from it?
