Book suggestions?

 | May 24, 2008 4:38 pm

As a side note before I begin, it turns out the problem with the install was not my fault, but a problem with the server.  That makes me feel a bit better even if it is still 7 hours of my life that I’ll never get back.

As a side note, I just wanted to mention that I’m finally reading Blue Highways.  Only just started it, but enjoying it so far.

Perhaps I should start a book page.  What are people suggestions for travel related books?  Currently on my list to finish/start:

  • Blue Highways – William Least Heat-Moon
  • Travels with Charley – John Steinbeck (Also, I’ve still never read Grapes of Wrath)
  • American Nomads – Richard Grant
  • Doing Nothing – Tom Lutz   (not about travel exactly)
  • Travel in the Ancient World – Lionel Casson (One of my favorite authors.  I read this a long time ago and finally getting back to it.)

I’m sure there’s a couple more about travel in the shopping bag of books I’ve got in the van, but that’s all I can think of at the moment.

Any suggestions?

You may find “Investment Biker: Around the World With Jim Rogers”
to be of some interest…

Your blog is quite interesting, thanks for writing it.

Best regards,

I read his follow up book a couple years ago, Adventure Capitalist: The Ultimate Road Trip about his trip with his wife around the world. Haven’t gotten around yet to going back and read Investment Biker though.

Thanks for the reminder to check it out.

Peter S. Beagle – I See By My Outfit (Vespas across the continent)
Jonathan Raban – Old Glory: An American voyage (small boat down the Mississippi River)

One of my personal favorites, not exactly a travel book per se, is “The Life of Pi.” And there certainly is a journey involved.

You might find the travel book I put together last year after traveling 700,000 miles in 15 years of interest. If so check out Vanabode
