By Jon Krakauer.
This is a rare departure for me – nonfiction! If the author sounds familiar, he also wrote Into the Wild (which I read a few years back).
The fun part of my being able to read this book is that the company I work for has a lending library in the building. Anyone can contribute, borrow or even keep the books left in. I pick one out and read during my lunch hour until it is done, and pick another one. This one I might keep to give to a good friend who is a mountain climber himself.
What a great idea, and I take full advantage of it!
