Teaser Tuesday: Freedom in Exile


clip_image001

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

  • 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!

Freedom in exile

“When they arrived, people were so impressed by their bravery and persistence that the Government permitted them to stay. Naturally, I was one of the first to hear of their arrival and I became quite curious to see what they were like, especially Harrer, as he quickly developed a reputation as an interesting and sociable person” (pg 41)

Freedom in Exile: An Autobiography of The Dalai Lama of Tibet by The Dalai Lama

I don’t normally do non-fiction for my Teaser Tuesday but this week I’m reading books in Swedish for my fiction so I thought I would give you a glimpse of my non-fiction. Anyone familiar with the film Seven Years in Tibet should recognize this scene :D
