The Books

If I am to be on-the-move eight, ten hours a day – and undoubtedly sleeping a full eight hours a night – I might still find myself with six hours of day, every day.

I am bringing my tablet with it’s typin’ ttachment for the purposes of prosemaking. But still I shall want things to occupy my mind. Especially when I’m too damned tired to write.

To make sure I have good options available, I’ve compiled a bit of a book-list. And, realizing that I have a Kindle, can easily access them all.

Here’s my little cycling library:

ACHEBE, Chinua: Things Fall Apart

ANONYMOUS. The Book of One Thousand Nights and a Night.

BIERCE, Ambrose. Collected Works.

BOCCACCIO, Giovanni. The Decameron

BRICKHILL, Paul. The Great Escape

& any book read before I go cycling will, indeed, be no hardship at all 🙂

EDIT: I had about a dozen of these books bolded as need-to-find. Then I found them all. The internet is pretty okay sometimes.

EDIT II: Read 2, and strafed 2, since starting this list. What rotted cheek!

EDIT III: 2 more down. I’m incorrigible.
