Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
"'Translating this beast is going to take a while.'
I heard his fingers drum on the leather cover. 'It's not Hobbes, is it? Put it away.'
'So how do you know what it is?' There was an impatient edge in his voice.
'Because I'm forbidden to read it. On pain of death. Put it away now.' My throat closed up.
'How could reading a book merit a death sentence?'"
~Page 179 of Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
