teaser tuesday (87)

Tuesday, July 24, 2012 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted every week by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page (or if you're reading on an electronic device, pick a random number and scroll to that section). Post two or more sentences from that page, along with the book title and author. Share your find with others in the comments at Should Be Reading, and don't give anything vital away!

“‘I’ve got a lot of skills,’ I said.  ‘Of course, some of them aren’t that useful in real life—like dragon taming.  Some of them are illegal—like knife throwing.  I think that’s illegal.’

‘I think it probably is.’”

p. 22 of Frank Cottrell Boyce’s Cosmic

I'd be very disappointed if knife throwing was illegal. Dragon taming now that is a skill I wish I had

I think knife throwing is legal as long as you aren't trying to kill or injure someone. I've done it at fairs several times, anyway.
