However crazy it may sound, I’m usually reading two books at the same time; one e-book on my iPhone in the gym and one at home in print.
My gym book at the moment is Wool by Hugh Howey, a book with a crazy amount of five-star reviews on Amazon and already hailed as a sci-fi classic. I’m not a huge fan of sci-fi, but the reviews and the storyline intrigued me so I couldn’t really pass it up. Check it out for yourself, I’m about 20% in and it’s a really great story.
Description for Wool:
This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.
The other book I’m reading is The Liberty Tree: Drunk to Sober Via Love, Death, Disintegration & Freedom by Suzanne Harrington. It seems like a very interesting book. I will review both The Liberty Tree and Wool on the blog soon.
Description for The Liberty Tree:
Touching and brutally honest, The Liberty Tree is like nothing you have read before. It raises questions many of us will find difficult to answer, but it is ultimately life affirming in its humour, warmth and candour. It will be the most talked about memoir of 2013.
