Teaser Tuesday: Cold Comfort Farm

"Had she not enough to do at Cold Comfort without there being a genius named Mybug staying a mile away from the farm who would probably fall in love with her? For she knew from experience that intellectuals and geniuses seldom fell for females of their own kidney, who had gone all queer about the shoes and coiffure, but concentrated upon reserved but normal and properly dressed persons like herself . . ."

Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons.

There are so many good teasers I could have picked. My copy is positively bristling with book darts.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.


  1. I love this book! So quotable. I was just looking through my copy and I have writing and underlining all over it. In pencil of course, but I should check into these book darts.

  2. Shelly -- It is a very quotable book. I love it!

    I am also a big fan of the book dart. I want to remember favorite passages, but I can't bring myself to write in my books, even in pencil.

  3. I've been meaning to read this one for years! I might have to move it to the top of my TBR stack now. Great teaser!

  4. Brilliant teaser and a book I am adding to my TBR list. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/03/teaser-tuesdays-within-hollow-crown_30.html

  5. Lori -- Thanks for visiting and leaving your link.

    Joy -- Judging from some other books you have enjoyed, I think you would like this one as much as I do. I can't believe I put it off so long. I think because I wasn't wild about the cover art, so I didn't get excited about it.

    Jennifer -- Hope you enjoy it! Thanks for the link.

  6. That book has been on my wishlist for a while now. My TT is here.

  7. I always forget the phrase "of one's own kidney," and am always charmed anew whenever I rediscover it.
