Here I share books I like, and it can be books you have read/heard about before or not. I read a lot, and therefor have many tips to share. It can be crime novels or it can be books on skiing/rock climbing.
This time of year when it is getting colder by the minute, and shorter days are fast becoming a regular thing. Reading is the best thing to do in order to pass the time, and preferably in a sofa with a big cup of tea while listening to some music. I for one always need more tips for new books, and interesting texts/poems.
BOOK: The Secret Agent
Written by: Joseph Conrad
Prescient and shocking, The Secret Agent is a story of terrorism, espionage and revolutionary groups in nineteenth century London. Quiet shop owner Verloc is a member of an anarchist group, and a secret agent for a foreign country.
Book: A Vertical Mind
Author: Don McGrath and Jeff Ellison
Why can some climbers keep it together, and others run out climbing? Why do other people quickly grab the draw on a challenging sport route? Why do some hesitate and bail on big, intimidating climbs? Why are there those that climb obsessively for years to suddenly give it up and walk away? All interesting questing to ask yourself!
Book: Towards the Summit
Written by: Randi Skaug
New Year’s Eve of 2007 she stood on top of Mt.Vinson while the sky was sprinkling .It had been her hardest hike to date but now her confidence was back, and she was feeling a whole lot better.
This confidence would through a project help people in Afghanistan feel less afraid of having to step on landmines.
In my opinion this book is well worth reading, and something you can easily get through during the fall months ahead. It is well written and has one interesting plot plus it is a bit of a different read considering the time, and era of when it was published.
