Blue Ridge Mountains and Bookstores

I spent last week in North Carolina and now my heart is full of mountains and books. In the evenings, after hiking, I read Cheryl Strayed's Wild. When I finished that, I started Amy Gerstler's collection of poems, Dearest Creatures, which I bought on the way down at Taylor Books in Charleston, WV. In Asheville, I discovered another great book store: Malaprop's.

Reading Wild in this cozy room was interesting and luxurious. I've backpacked across Isle Royale and I do love to camp, but it was sort of delicious to read about blisters and lost toe nails as I wiggled my own healthy feet in these cool cotton sheets.
