A line from the boat #Teaser Tuesday – 1

My current read is an old old book, excerpts from which have been part of my childhood textbooks. Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome is proving to be an absolute delight. I had somehow missed reading it all these years. In fact I haven’t read much of the author at all. But ever since I started this one I have been raving about it everywhere.

I stumbled upon the Teaser Tuesday meme at A House of Books and had to join in. It’s Wednesday I know but in some part of the world it still is Tuesday, so here I am with two sentences from the book :-). Take a look..

It is not that I object to work, mind you; I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. I love to keep it by me: the idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart.

I can identify with that  :-).

Thoroughly enjoying this very straight-faced very British brand of humour.

      I was laughing out loud at so many many places. It’s worth reading many times over.

      Me too. It was a whole long passage actually and I wish I could have shared all of it.
