Teaser Tuesday

Already posted today, but I forgot that it is Tuesday - that's what happens when summer begins settling into my mindset. Days roll by without being named.

Teaser Tuesday involves picking up your latest book, randomly choosing a page, and writing down two sentences. I've seen it at other blogs, and thought it was pretty cool. So here goes.

"After visiting with Meena Hasina and Ruchira Gupta in Bihar, Nick crossed from India into Nepal and a border village crowded with stalls selling clothing, snacks, and more sinister wares. That border crossing is the one through which thousands of Nepali girls are trafficked into India on their way to the brothels of Kolkata."

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.

This is a heavy, but worthwhile read.
