Quote...because they're both more about not just successful off the grid living but also more about seizing the day and exploring life with wild abandon.
Quote from: Guybrush on Jan 14, 2023, 10:24 AMI never read anything in that genre, I believe, but thanks for the recommendation. I did move out into the forest for 2 weeks when I was 17, sometime after my older GF broke up with me it was an interesting time.About King, I've read quite a bit, but most of my reading was when I was in my teens. My favorite then was Desperation. I liked the theme and how grisly it occasionally gets. Upon rereading it a few years ago, it didn't quite hold up so my opinion has changed. I'm not sure what King-book I like the most anymore.Now I'm reading Garth Marengi's Terrortome which is just stupid fun and very true to his character from the TV show
QuoteI think this will always have limited popularity, not just with readers but with writers too. If the most exciting chapter of your book is, "The Day The Goat Got Into My Cabbage Patch", then the author really has nowhere to hide, either as a writer or a thinker: no distractions like plot or suspense to cover up the quality of your craft

Quote from: Guybrush on Jan 15, 2023, 01:44 AM...What I got instead was a book containing letters he sent to his sister and others while on his journey.He had a lot to say about his failing health, bug bites and his brother in law's business. And he made a 19th century joke about the murder of a certain ape that seems extremely inappropriate today

I still have it here on my shelves so perhaps one day I'll have another go at failing to understand it !No and especially not while feeling drowsy under a parasol on a hot day on a Thailand beach.The one thing I vaguely remember from it is that Hawking suspected that time moves along with increasing entropy and that's why time moves in the direction from cause to consequence. But that this might change one day, who knows?
