Teaser Tuesday – The 210th Day

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I’m currently reading a novella by Souseki Natsume, the title is The 210th Day.
The story is full of conversation between 2 men.

My teaser comes from page 25

“Yes, well – society, you know, there’s this about it: if the son of a tofu seller can become somebody who counts, there is still a chance of somebody who counts becoming a tofu seller.”

“What do you mean by somebody who counts?”

      Well hello neighbour 🙂 … I’m glad you stopped by. I have some friends from Malaysia and each from different hobbies I have. One, I met because we both love Laruku, the other is because we love turtles…and now I meet the one who shares the same love toward books 🙂
