Thread: Now Reading

  1. #1

    Default Now Reading

    Most of the stuff I read is either recommended by a friend or I see a reference to a book in a blog or forum post.

    So why not share what you're reading so I can add it to my list :-)

    I'll start things off with the next post. Feel free to note any book or even trail journal that is related to hiking or camping.

    Cheers,

    In fact that one Perry posted last year was up for free on kindle, because it is an old book, it may come up again as such.

    Sounds an awful lot like Henry Thoreau.

    I'm a little behind in reading as I'm not much of a reader but finished AWOL on the trail and now reading THRU. I also have mountains and madness by Blissful

    "You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace;the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands."
    Isaiah 55:12

    I'm reading We. It's not a hiking book, but there's a lot of walking.

    I just finished "Walking for Sunshine" last week. I'm currently reviewing old make-your-own-gear books trying to design an external frame daypack. More to see if I can do it than any other reason but it is something I would like. I realize it's probably less expensive to just buy something. "How to make your own lightweight hiking and camping gear" by Vick Rolling Hines (1981) is the one that is open on my desk right now. I have more than a dozen make-your-own-gear type books.

    I have read the AT book by Skywalker, no I'm reading his book on the PCT. I believe that's it for hiking books so far. Besides that, I recently read Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell and American Sniper by Chris Kyle.

    Has anyone read "Rabid" the spoof on Cheryl Strayed's "Wild" seems like a funny read, I added it to my very long and growing wish list.

    The only thing better than mountains, is mountains where you haven't been.
