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.

“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.

Yes here’s yet another new meme for me to participate in!

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

One of the books I’m currently reviewing is entitled:

moon

Finding the Moon in Sugar by Gint Aras page 1

“I swear right now that everything your gonna read in here happened 100% true.”    and

“Still, for anybody who wants to read it, it’s a real good story even though there’s parts in here that get kinda wigged.”

This is a strange read because of the “rough” language but I admit it has intrigued me enough that I am quickly reading through it in order to discover what happens next.
