A Grand Travel Companion

To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations - such is a pleasure beyond compare.
Kenko Yoshida, Buddhist monk (1283? - 1350?)

The first half of my journey has passed quickly thanks to the lively conversations found inside a good book. From the lamplight illumining the cramped confines of an economy airline seat to that of a familiar corner in Frankfurt airport, my travel companion entertains and enlightens as books bring together a small community and lighten the hardships of war. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society has certainly lightened my journey. Onward!
