Interesting read. And, quite frightening.

The final few hundred pages of 'Dance with Dragons' book five of the Game of Thrones series. Soon I will join the masses of people waiting (and waiting...and waiting some more) for books six and seven. :|

I might launch in to 'Cloud Atlas' by David Mitchell after this.

I'd be interested to hear what you think about the book you're reading. :)

I HAVE read that book! Few years back and I have given it to many others to read as well. Bryson is an excellent and descriptive writer. :) His (unofficial) bibliography from that book led me to read several others in fact...

The other book I had been reading, On the Beaten Path, was very good. Stirred my fires some more where hiking the AT is concerned :)

If you like books such as these, you may like a book written by a much loved (by me) naturalist named Bernd Heinrich. The first (and favorite) book I read by him is called A Year in the Maine Woods. He does a Thoreauesque experiment of living MOSTLY in his cabin in Maine.... :)

Thanks for the referral. I'm heading to the library today and will look for Heinrich's works.

Yes, after reading Bryson's book my wanderlust-muse is sparked and now I want to read more and also daydream about hiking the AT. :)

Soul Picnic...
 
Lately, I've become obsessed with Laura Nyro and am reading "Soul Picnic" - which is about her music and her incredibly private, even mysterious life.

I see references to one of my fave writers, Bill Bryson.

One of my absolute favourites of his is The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid.

It's an autobiographical look at his childhood growing up in 50s America.
As usual it's wryly dry and witty.

Mayhem at the Marina A Lexi Hyatt Mystery by Carlene Miller

This is book 2 of a series of well written mysteries

Enchantress 09-26-2013 05:02 PM

One, two, three ...
 
Firstly 'Spilling Clarence' by Anne Ursu. I'm only up to chapter three at the moment, but I'm looking forward to getting more into this one. Secondly, 'Martin Sloane' by Michael Redhill. Another obscure pick, but I'm enjoying it as well. And then there's the final book in the Sookie Stackhouse series (the books that True Blood is based off), Dead Ever after by Charlaine Harris. This one is on my Nook and I'm savouring every last page. I think I'll be sad when I am through. But then again, maybe I'll just start book one and read them all over again!

There, I officially have a plan. Or, I could read the 17 other books that I have on the shelf. I confess, I'm a book hoarder ...

The cancer chronicles : unlocking medicine's deepest mystery / George Johnson.

When the woman he loved was diagnosed with a metastatic cancer, science writer George Johnson embarked on a journey to learn everything he could about the disease and the people who dedicate their lives to understanding and combating it. What he discovered is a revolution under way--an explosion of new ideas about what cancer really is and where it comes from. In a provocative and intellectually vibrant exploration, he takes us on an adventure through the history and recent advances of cancer research that will challenge everything you thought you knew about the disease.

I had time today to stop by a local library and while browsing books to read, I came across two books to check out, tonight. I am beginning this one tonight:
Arlen, Alice (2000). She Took To The Woods: A Biography and Selected Writings by Louise Dickenson Rich. Rockport, Maine: Down East Books.
Here's an excerpt from the Introduction to this biography about wilderness writer Louise Dickenson Rich (I read it on my way home tonight by train and I'm already hooked):
"My acquaintence with wilderness writer Louise Dickenson Rich began years ago in the midst of research I was doing for a book on traditional Maine sporting camps. I heard her name and glanced down the "Carry Road" (originally a canoe portage trail) leading to her place by the Rapid River in the Rangely Lakes region of western Maine. I also took note of a log home occupied, I was informed, by Louise's longtime friend and neighbor, Alys Parsons. At that point, though, there were places to go, people and a deadline to meet, so I moved on.

My sporting camp book came out and I started recieving mail from readers. Several petitioned, "Please write a book about Louise Dickenson Rich." A librarian from the Midwest was very specific:
"We Took to the Woods (the 1942 best-seller that launched Rich's career) is still checked out on a regular basis. There has never been a biography written about her and I feel you are the person to do it."

I started to pay attention.

Soon I was stumbling into Louise wherever I went..... " (pp. vii).
Alice then goes on to talk about how she finally won the support of Louise's brother, Ralph, who sent Alice to see his sister, who eventually gave her a bag of notions belonging to Louise. It's going to obviously be a riveting account of LDR's life and times in the wild's of Maine; but to become more intimately aquainted with who LDR is and her style of writing and what she wrote about, years ago, is toward the back of the book, which includes titles, such as: Fogbound, Wish You Were Here, First Monday in March, Written in the Stars, Grandma and the Seagull, The Red Slipper, Can't Find My Apron Strings and more. Then, the reader is treated to unpublished writings belonging to LDR and a conclusion which is followed by an expansive index (appendice).

I'm looking forward to snuggling down with this particular book over the next few nights and into the coming weekend.

ps/ the photo below was taken last night by an photographer who is native to my home state of Oregon: It's rare for us to even witness the Northern Lights in our area, but he took this picture on the high desert, on a lonely road outside of Bend, Oregon. It's already snowing in our 'neck' of the woods (winter is here).
