Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Basically, open the book you’re currently reading and share a couple of sentences from that page on your blog. Avoid spoilers of course.
I’m currently reading The Best American Travel Writing 2006 anthology, edited by Tim Cahill, so my teaser will come from one of the essays in the book.
“Absolutely terrifying” is Litton’s favorite expression, a phrase he invokes several times an hour to describe everything from shifting weather patterns to the possibility that the six liters of Sheep Dip Scotch stowed in his hatch might run dry before the conclusion of this 280-mile odyssey through the rapids of the Grand Canyon.
from Kevin Fedarko’s essay, “Ain’t It Just Grand?” (pgs 77-78)
