S2S Day-2: Booked

all my stuff arrived fine. I dropped four C02 cartridges down my seat tube when packing, when I put the bike box in the back of the truck at SFO they all came tumbling out ;-)

The one thing I left behind were my books. I can't remember the last time I read a book, well a non-computer manual. So I've been stacking them up at home to bring along with me.

I found myself in Borders facing racks and racks with no idea what to buy. after a while I got fed-up reading the liner notes and avoided anything that was on the New York Times Best Seller list, Oprahs book club or a Pulitzer prize winner.

that seemed to cut down the choice. I was strangely drawn to a number of the books I'd read 30yrs ago when I was an English major, Kurt Vonnegut, Catcher in the Rye, Catch 22 etc. In the end I bought 3-books for the ride

Alas Babylon by Pat Frank
Straight Man by Richard Russo
The Demon in the freezer by Richard Preston

its going to be a long week.
