Teaser Tuesday

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 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!
Well, here is my teaser for this week....taken from 'A Short History of the World' by H. G. Wells which I picked up at the second hand bookstore the other day. It is so interesting to compare the understanding of the world in 1922 with what we know and have achieved today!

"The deepest ocean dredgings go down five miles. The highest recorded flight of an aeroplane is little more than four miles. Men have reached to seven miles up in balloons but at a cost of great suffering. No bird can fly as high as five miles, and small birds and insects which have been carried up by aeroplanes drop off insensible far below that level." (p.14-15)


  1. Would be very interesting indeed.
