Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can participate.
My Teaser Tuesdays book for this week is a travel one.
Six Months in Mexico
by Nellie Bly
(Elizabeth Jane Cochran)
The prompter’s box is fixed in front of the stage, and his voice is not only heard continually above that of the actors, but his candle and hands are always visible, and he often takes time to peep out and take a survey of the audience; but the Mexicans do not notice him any more than the footlights. A bell, which sounds as heavy as a church bell, rings and the curtain falls.
Six Months in Mexico is a travel book. I am finding it interesting enough but prefer the other two. Around the World in Seventy-two Days provides the excitement of the race in addition to visits to many lands instead of just one. Ten Days in a Mad-House is the story of Nellie’s ordeal undercover in an asylum.
Nellie Bly Online is a good resource for facts about her. Copies of many of her articles are available there.
