More reading adventures

Caution: reading these books may change everything

On a recent podcast episode, my writer friend Christopher Gronlund recommended a couple of great books for people like us – explorers and adventurers.

On today’s show, I’ve got some more of his reading suggestions.

Once again, in his own words, are more of his recommendations:

“For fiction, Robin Sloan’s Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore (affiliate link) is not obscure, but it’s about old and new technology, looking at the world in different ways, and how doing things with friends is a wonderful thing. I’ve read the last page of the book soooooooo many times; in fact, after sending this email, I’ll pull it down from the shelf and read it again.

“Jim Lynch’s The Highest Tide (affiliate link) is a masterpiece in noticing things before you. There are descriptive passages of a kid combing the coastline during low tide and finding things most people never notice. It’s a coming-of-age story that has some surreal moments, but it’s the kind of book that book clubs would love.

“I’ve not picked it up, but there’s a best-of poetry collection of Mary Oliver’s poetry – Devotions. (affiliate link) Her work is very in the moment.”

I can’t wait to get started on these books.
