Christmas Reading ....Gift Ideas

Monday, November 28, 2011

I was looking over my book collection this morning and realized that I was missing a few of my favorites. Oh well, they can be replaced. I love sharing things that lift up my spirits and add worth to my well being. Maybe I can do the same with this simple tool such as a "blog". ....... Here are a few of my favorite books that I believe some of you may enjoy and would make a great Christmas gift for someone.

Bill Bryson's ..... "A Walk in the Woods" (a humorous story of hiking a
segment of the Appalachian Trail)
"A Sunburned Country" (his Austrailia adventure)

Peter Jenkin's .. "A Walk Across America" (a hiking adventure through the
eastern and southern part of America)
"Looking For Alaska" (his adventures in Alaska)

Peter Heller's ... "Hell or High Water.....Surviving Tibet's Tsangpo River"
(a great kayak adaventure)

John Eldredge's ..."Wild at Heart ... Discovering the Secret of a Man's Soul"
( self-help reading )

Several authors contributed to the book ... "Epic....Stories of Survival From the
World's Highest Peak"

I can list more, but this is a good start. I'm hoping that some of you may offer a title or two or comment on these that I've listed in hopes of helping others decide.

Reading is a wonderful healthy tool and is helpful in reducing the risk of Alzheimer Disease and keeping the brain in good shape.

Love the Spark community....Happy Holidays and Happy Reading!

    You know something these are good suggestions...
    wish I had seen this earlier..

    My suggestion --you need to sit down and write a book about your trails and adventures and add all the great pictures you have taken..

    it would be fantastic

    Surviving Tibet's Tsangpo River sounds like a great read. I'll have to see if I can get it on my Kindle.
