Teaser Tuesday

Photobucket

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading.



The Unbearable Lightness of Scones by Alexander McCall Smith

Bertie could see it coming, but why was his mother so blinkered, so utterly unaware of the strikingly obvious? There was so much that she seemed just not to notice, thought Bertie - obvious things, like the way that Ulysses looked so like Dr. Fairbairn. p. 89

  1. From the language, I wonder where this story takes place. I had never heard the word blinkered used in this way before, so I looked it up. It means considering only a narrow point of view. Thanks for teaching me a new word and a possible book to read!

    Here's my teaser..

  11. Any teaser including the word "blinkered" is a brilliant teaser. I will be adding this book to my TBR list.

  12. Very interesting! The title is amusing and it doesn't quite seem to go with the teaser. I'm curious now...
