Enough research papers on linguistics to kill Pike National Forest.

That and the comics page in the paper to round things out.

Roberto bolano's 2666 is one of the best books I've read in a long time

just finished colum mccann's let the great world spin. Very good about new York city at the moment a high wire walker walks between the twin towers. Which really happened. Though everything is fiction. There's also a great documentary on the wire walker called man on a wire.

Haruki murakami's Kafka on the shore. Kafkaesque?

Big sky by a.b. Guthrie. Fiction about settlers moving west. Great trilogy similar to cormac McCarthy's trilogy but more about Americans journeys settling the west

also working on over a hundred issues of rock&ice and climbing going back to 1992 that I got for free on craigslist.

Alpine climbing is a curious undertaking. Why in the hell would anyone like to get up in the middle of the night and trudge off into the darkness heading for an endless day of stress, exertion, fear, and danger? On your day off! This is supposed to be recreation! I don't understand it myself and it doesn't surprise me that not many climbers practice it. What surprises me is that any climbers do it. Answer: we're stupid.
