Asking an adventurous person to be still and stay put can be a very tall order however due to the current state of the world these orders of quarantine, social distancing, and shelter in place are for the health and well being of us all. Both the adventurer and the loafer are affected this time and everyone in between; we are in this together.
As we all try to adjust to our new reality, we find ourselves striving for activity both physically and mentally and so I thought I’d perhaps try to assist with the mental part. Below are links to several book reviews I have done in the past. The books I review typically have some connection to the outdoors, hiking, adventure, wildlife, etc.
I present to you this list in hopes that you may leave your four walls via an escape with a good book. Be forewarned there are a lot of my personal opinions in the reviews!
Take a look at the reviews and pick a book. Links are provided to find the book on Amazon (some books can be found in various forms) but don’t forget to check out your local library via apps like Libby or support your local bookstores via apps like Libro.fm (especially now when lots of local business are closed).
