Teaser Tuesday - Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson

Midterms are over! And now I can resume reading(: Right now, I'm reading another book that I borrowed from the school library (I try to go there often) called - Notes from a Small Island. I picked it up because in Singapore, we have a book whose title was inspired by that (Notes from an Even Small Island by Neil Humphreys - go read it!). So, here's today's teaser:

"I forgot to mention curry houses earlier in my brief list of Bradford's glories, which is a terrible oversight. Bradford may have lost a wool trade, but it has gained a thousand excellent Indian restraurants, which I personally find a reasonable swap as I have a strictly limited need for bales of fiber but can take about as much Indian food as you care to shovel at me." (page 180)
Do you think the book sounds funny? So far, it's an amusing read, but then again, I'm only 3 chapters into it.

What are your Teaser Tuesdays?


  1. I like the teaser. I have read one book by Bryson and really enjoyed it. I hope you like this one too. My teasers are from Changing the Game by Jaci Burton and Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. Happy reading!

  2. Hehe, love it! I'm kind of sad since I'm Indian I think I take Indian food for granted because when people are like, "IT'S AMAZING!" I'm just like, "Well alright." Looks like an enjoyable read though!

    I'm reading Scars by Cheryl Rainfield!

  3. Oh, I love it! I like the narrator's voice. Enjoy! And congrats on getting beyond the midterms.


  4. I've read other Bryson books but not this one. Thanks for the tease. Here is my TT http://newpaperadventures.blogspot.com/2012/05/teaser-tuesday-may-29.html
