READING

 

I’ve always been an avid reader… especially when I began going on long expeditions and needed to keep preoccupied during storm days, rest days, loss of sanity days. One of my favorite things to do, still, is going to the library and check out a book. It’s like Christmas morning, especially if I’m fortunate to be the first to read a brand-new book they’ve just acquired.

 

The reason I’ve decided to start posting books I read is a selfish one.  If this gets one person to put down their smartphone, turn off their laptop or TV, and sit for an undisturbed period of time to enjoy a good book, then it’s worth it. The benefits are abundant.

 

Most books I read have been suggested to me by other readers, admirers, or in magazine reviews. Not every book I read I like… though a majority of those won’t be posted because I just can’t finish them… too boring and won't hold my attention.

 

Get outside, sit under a tree or pop in a tent, and read.

Skål,
Sean

The Unsettlers, Mark Sundeen

It’s called a simple life, but by no means is farming, living off the grid per say, is easy… anything but. Shooting for sustainable and ethical means to live and go your own path is authentic as it gets.

What’s the motive? Monica keep you captivated on the mystery. I’m not into true crime novels. It’s everywhere these days in the media, major overload… figured don’t need it during my reading time as well. However, being these arsons occurred in my beloved state of VA, I was intrigued. The book will keep you turning the pages, and good for a Fall, rainy day inside the home.
