I’ve just finished reading Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, by Cheryl Strayed. It’s an autobiography by a woman who walked a large part of the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. I bought it because the cover had a large, broken-in, leather hiking boot on it. The chapters where she hikes are great, but not the parts where I had to read about her personal problems. I’m now quite keen to do a nice hike though.
Before that I read nice light entertainment in the whole Harry Hole series of books by Jo Nesbo on my Kindle. But then I lost (forgot) the Kindle on a plane. Whenever there is a new Deon Meyer book, I read it immediately and my all-time favourite books include Catch-22 (Joseph Heller), Adrift on the Open Veld (Deneys Reitz) and Kane and Abel (Jeffrey Archer).
I love reading but I do it purely for pleasure and leisure. When I study a subject, I do so on the internet.
