  • Teaser Tuesday – Team of Rivals

    teaser_tuesdays1MizB of Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event

    Here are the rules:
    * Grab your current read
    * Let the book fall open to a random page
    * Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12
    *You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
    * Please avoid spoilers!

    This week’s teaser is:
    “Northern sentiment had been inflamed further by the publicationof Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Less than a year after its publication in March 1852, more than three hundred thousand copies of the novel had sold in the United States, a rate rivaled only by the Bible. ”
    pg. 161   – Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin

    – A gift from my sweet friend Johanna who knows how much I love Abraham Lincoln, Team of Rivals is a study of the political genius of Lincoln. Nearly 900 pages long, this book may look intimidating, but I’m loving the history in this book. And it’s perfect to enjoy a tidbit at time. If you enjoy history, particularly the Civil War, I bet you’ll like this book too.
