Reading

I am going to make an effort to note what I am reading with each post, or at least often enough so that anyone interested can follow what has risen to the top of the reading list.

Currently I am reading Epitaph for a Desert Anarchist: The Life and Legacy of Edward Abbey. If you are not familiar with Abbey, then become familiar. He is a character much worth reading.

I just finished Harry Harrison's One Step from Earth, a wonderful science fiction collection.

I managed to get a window ac unit installed today in the caravan, though it is struggling to keep the place tolerable. I am hoping that once the sun goes down that the unit will cool the caravan sufficiently to sleep.

Such is the state of affairs..

You know, we just got some new bookshelves. While rearranging things, I stumbled upon "Desert Solitaire" and "Abbey's Road", neither of which I have yet read. Which one should I put at the top of the queue?

Honestly I cannot say. I have only recently begun reading Abbey myself and have not yet read Desert Solitaire. Abbey's Road did make me fall in love with his writing style and subject matter...

The more I read of Abbey the more I like him. Between reading his work and following The Field Lab blog, I am almost tempted to build in the desert instead of other locations I have been considering.
