Teaser Tuesday - Feb. 1

Teaser Tuesday is hosted over at Should Be Reading (and isn't that a great title for a blog. It certainly is exactly what I should be doing). This is the description of the meme:
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!
Perhaps this isn't that good of a week to attempt this meme for the first time, as the only book I'm really reading right now is non-fiction. Oh well.

My teasers:
One particularly intriguing find from Pompeii itself is a couple of wax tablets discovered stashed away with some silverware in the furnace of a set of baths. They record a loan from one woman, Dicidia Margaris, to another, Poppaea Note, an ex-slave.
The Fires of Vesuvius: Pompeii Lost And Found by Mary Beard. Page 182.
