Reading for the Road

Nomadic life lends itself to reading, even frantically globe trotting. There is down time to kill while waiting for cabs, trains, buses and planes. Combined with the transit time of actually reaching your destination.

Other times geographical remoteness and limited resources play a part. Given limited internet connectivity combined with a finite supply of stored power you are forced into less resource intensive forms of recreation. Of which reading is the undisputed king!

When off grid for long periods my voracious appetite for books is near unstoppable. Leaving me on the permanent look out for recommendations on new titles to read.

So this page is intended as aid to others. Listing off recently finished books along with some of my thoughts on each.

You don’t even know where I’m going.
I don’t care. I’d like to go anywhere.
