Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

Teaser Tuesday


Virginie Says…

The teaser today comes from Pilate’s Wife by Antoinette May.  It’s also one of the books I’m currently giving away, so check it out here!

pilate‘My parents took me on a small skiff out to Pharos where the white cylinder of Alexandria’s famous lighthouse shimmered in the early morning sun, its sparkle almost blinding.  Even Father breathed heavily after climing the four hundred steps to stand beside the watch fire.  Although the flames, kept blazing from sunset to sunrise, were ebbing now, the rays from the great polished reflecting mirror dazzled my eyes.  “Nothing that man has ever built or ever will build can equal this,” Father told me. ‘

Pilate’s Wife by Antoinette May, page 43.
