Reasons to get up in the morning: Books

Books. I love books as I stated yesterday. On our backpacking trip, one afternoon was particularly hot and we spend on hour under a pine tree in the shade. We read for FOUR HOURS, which is unheard of for us on a backpacking trip. We were both reading Jim Harrison books: Dalva and River Swimmer. It was such an odd thing to get lost in the stories and find connections with characters that knew details about our hometowns, ate at the restaurants we ate at and drive down the roads of our childhood to look up and remember we were sitting at the bottom of a red-rock canyon. So surreal! Another great reason to get up in the morning!
