Ladies and gents, I’m back in action! Today I handed in my final essay for the semester, and now I officially have four and a half weeks of holidays! And I have big plans. There will be blogging. There will be lots of catching up on the reading I miss out on during the semester – my to-be-read pile has grown into some absurd piece of architecture. I have plans to get a new project thing happening via this blog also, so look out for that during the next few weeks.

For now though, it’s Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  •  You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

“It was seventy-five kilometres away, one of the longest distances between temples anywhere on the pilgrimage, and the walk had a reputation for being awful; supposedly it was the place where the majority of walkers drop out and return home. After my night at Saba-daishi, I began walking alongside the famously wretched Highway 55.”
