Teaser Tuesday - May 19

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author 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!
Not knowing what to do with ourselves until that time arrived, we continued to drink until we were not in a fit condition for this hazardous undertaking - except we were fortunate to get an empty car, so as to lie down and sleep upon the journey. At last we made our way towards the yards, where we saw the men making up the train.
From W H Davies 'The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp' - our BATS (book group) book of the month - this one was a book from school days for one of our members. The tale of a man from the UK travelling around America in the late 19th century hitching lifts on the railways - the hazardous process he was about to undertake in the teaser.
