Teaser Tuesday #56


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B 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! 

Here's my teaser:
Think of currency and the first thing that comes to mind is the dollar. Interestingly, the word dollar is much older than the American unit of currency, and its history is a story involving many countries in different continents. 
-English Bites! My Fullproof English Learning Formula by Manish Gupta
