Teaser Tuesday

It’s time once again for a quick tease from one of the book’s I’m reading this week:

This time I’m reading Hershey: Milton S. Hershey’s Extraordinary Life of Wealth, Empire, and Utopian Dreams by Michael D’Antonio.

hershey

“Milton S. Hershey had become one of Pennsylvania’s more prominent men, and there seemed to be no limit on how big his company could grow.” page 60.

and

“If you had been a fifteen-year-old boy in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1872, you would have wanted to work at Joseph C. Royer’s Ice Cream Parlor and Garden.” page 26.

    Mmmmm. Chocolate! Probably a place I’d like to work right now. Nice teasers.

    You know, I’d almost want to read the Hershey book simply for the cover! Hee!

    And given that I actually did have some relatives in Lancaster County in that time period…I’d probably want to read it for the second quote too. šŸ™‚

    Meanwhile, my own teaser is now up, at Bookishgal
