Finished a few books while in Hawaii…
Blue Latitudes, Tony Horwitz. Tony re-traced the steps of Captain Cook and his three historic voyages of discovery. The book is a quick read, entertaining, and filled with lots of good detail on Cook. Includes a nice bibliography as well.
Eiger Dreams: Ventures Among Men and Mountains, Jon Krakauer. This is a collection of the articles Jon has written for Outdoor magazine and others. Definitely worth a read for climbers, outdoor enthusiasts, or adventure writing buffs.
Violets are Blue, James Patterson. Somewhat cheesy suspense/thriller. Quick read.
