Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"By fourth grade Jonathan was working independently, whiling away the hours memorizing the digits of pi. In fifth grade he studied bookkeeping on his own.  He was a math genius..."


"He skipped two grades, read Ayn Rand, and planned to go to Harvard and become President of the United States, and make a gazillion dollars."  

From: The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman  p. 116
