Gosh, it's been a long time since I've done this meme. Over two months, really. Ahem. Anyway, this week my teaser is from Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. It's taken me a long time to get around to reading this book; with the recent NSA spying issue/debate and the general constant political concern that government is getting too big, I suppose it's better late than never.
(Not the cover of the copy I'm reading. But I couldn't find the right one.)
