Teaser Tuesdays -- December 10
Teaser Tuesdays is a meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. The idea is to grab your current read and share a couple of random sentences. Share the title and the author so others can add the book to their TBR list if they so desire.
Currently I am reading two books so I will share from each.
The first is Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson.
"Dear Ginger, I have never been a great follower of rules. You know that."
Hmmm...sounds like a great big "but" to me! I just started this book last night and didn't get beyond these first two lines before the bag monster got me so I will refrain from even trying to make any sort of assessment at this time.
My second book is Good News for Modern Man: The New Testament in Today's English.
I have had this book for years and have never read it because I always felt the King James version to be the gold standard for Bibles but I ran across it recently and decided to give it a go. The only thing is, I found the little disclaimer on the front page to be a bit off putting. It says "God's Word for a New Age". That brings up a whole other issue for another blog. So, here is my passage:
"No one can be a slave to two masters: he will hate one and love the other; he will be loyal to one and despise the other. So it is with you: you cannot have both God and wealth as your master."
So, there are my two passages.
