    Howdy. This is Bob. The Bob of Bob Blog. This blog contains about five minutes of my thoughts each day. A record. A history. And occasionally worth reading.

    Book: Of Mice and Men
    Rereading a classic never hurt. John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men is definitely a classic. It stands up to the test and made me cry even though I knew how the story was going to end.

    Going to the beach to read a book is an awfully fine way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

    Book: Short Cuts by Raymond Carver
    This book of selected short stories by Raymond Carver is pretty dark and depressing. I guess people with crappy and creapy lives are more interesting than happy and uneventful lives. I wouldn't recommend it except Carver creates such interesting characters is such a short space that once you start, you won't want to stop reading.

    There is a movie out that was inspired by these stories. I'd recommend reading the book first.

    Book: Into a Desert Place
    Graham Mackintosh decided to walk the 3000 miles around the coast of Baja. No trails. No water. And he didn't have any experience. This is a wonderful book that you wish kept going. I'm sure if you tried it again today -- almost 20 years later -- the experience would be much different yet very much the same. This is one of those books that anyone that doubts themselves needs to read. Anything is possible in life: you just need to dream a little bit and then go out and do the hard work required.

    This book was meant to help inspire us for our road trip to Cabo. It certainly did. It also made me miss the adventurous spirit I seem to have lost someplace. Time to go for a hike.
