- 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!)

This week, my teaser is from A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie. I've been on a bit of an Agatha Christie spree lately, working through her books featuring detectives Hercule Poirot and Jane Marple. They're a lot of fun to read, though I have to kind of stop myself from reading too many of them otherwise everything blurs together and they all start coming across as the same.
The mild eyes, the long obstinate mouth, the slightly upturned nose. Poor Dora, so maddening, so muddle-headed, so devoted and such a problem. A dear fussy old idiot and yet, in a queer way, with an instinctive sense of values.
(Since this is mystery, I was afraid to look at anything beyond the point I'd read up to. Hence the lower page number.)
Have you ever read any books by Agatha Christie? Got any favorites? (Mine would be The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, at least so far.)
What are you reading now? Do you have a teaser to share?
