Teaser Tuesdays - A Bookish Post

Today I have no new nail polish for y'all. I am wearing China Glaze Watermelon Rind, which I have reviewed before and love. I do, however, have something fun called Teaser Tuesdays. I copy/pasted the below from

teasertuesdays31 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB ofShould 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!
I am not reading any books for pleasure at the moment, so I am giving y'all a teaser from the Lombardo translation of Dante's Inferno, from his Divine Comedy. I am reading it for a course I am taking, but everyone should read it! I've read this book perhaps 2 or 3 times before, and have always liked it. :) This translation is particularly nice.

Of course I wept, leaning on one of the stones
of the hard crag, so that my escort
said to me, "Are you still one of the fools?
Pity survives here where pity is dead"
- Canto XX, lines 25-28
