What I’m reading.

The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, which, ultimately, is a book that is all about life on the road.

P. 60 (HarperCollins Fifth Edition Reset, 1995, picked up at a bookstore in Cuzco):

Now it is a strange thing, but things that are good to have and days that are good to spend are soon told about, and not much to listen to; while things that are uncomfortable, palpitating and even gruesome, may make a good tale, and take a deal of telling anyway.
