I’ve just lost half an hour puttering around online trying to find a good book to bring on course with me. Do you have any recommendations? It needs to be paperback because I’ll be carrying it on my back for two weeks and I need to keep my pack weight down. Eliot sliced the binding of one of my books once so he could take just a third of the book on a climbing trip. I’ve mostly forgiven him, but I still eye him suspiciously when he packs for trips. There’s lightweight, and then there’s desecration. I’d prefer non-fiction. I get to read so little these days that reading fiction feels too wildly indulgent to be enjoyable. Really. Biography. History. Humor. Inspirational. I’m not all that particular. A book you would read twice if you had the time… I won’t be running for about two weeks while I’m out there, so I’ll have some reading time and energy. Reading by headlamp in a sleeping bag with a warm water bottle by my toes. Very nice.
We’re out of coffee and I’m guzzling black tea this morning. (Send help!) I can barely manage to get any thoughts together for you. I think I’ll just leave off now and get to my core workout before Asa and Eliot get up. Today’s going to disappear like yesterday did and I’ve got a “To Do” list the length of my leg to get done before I fly out tomorrow afternoon.
I’ll have to speed order any book you recommend that the San Antonio library doesn’t have, so send suggestions in the next 15 hours please.
