Outpost - Cover
October 24, 2021
by Dan Richards

It took a few chapters to get into this book, but once I did, I think it paid off. Dan has a nice friendly writing style, and the stories he tells are interesting and charming. There are also references to a few other books I am reading (The Importantance of Being Iceland, and The Living Mountain), so that helped me connect a bit more. Overall I think it's a nice entry in this genre, but lacks some of the philosophical punch of Barry Lopez in Horizon, say. Still worth reading, though, and certainly fun.

Lev's Violin - Cover
September 5, 2021
by Helena Attlee

This book was enjoyable, easy, reading. I got fully immersed in the feeling of the violin culture; in the history and the way the author is follows the story through different towns and countries. This idea of just taking a journey dictated entirely by a spontaneous interest is very appealing. Really enjoyed it!

Lost Pianos of Siberia - Cover
April 18, 2021
by Sophy Roberts

An amazing read about a journey through various towns in Siberia where the author is in principle searching for a piano, but in reality just enjoying the discover of history and connection through pianos. One of the best books I've read. Will definitely read again!
