-grab your current read
-open to a random page
-share two teaser sentences from somewhere on the page (avoid spoilers!)
-be sure to include the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their tbr list if they like your teaser
-leave a comment with your link at Should Be Reading
Since India's independence day is nearing( August 15 ) and I've always wanted to read some of this great man's books, I picked The Discovery of India by India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. It isn't an easy read but I'm thoroughly enjoying it and hope to make a special post on August 15 with how much ever I've finished of the book along with some poems that came to the fore during the Indian freedom struggle.
" Our women came to the front and took charge of the struggle. Women have always been there of course, but now there was an avalanche of them, which took not only the British Government but their own menfolk by surprise. "
