it’s a good dilemma to have. I’ve been contemplating a birthday present for myself, and i’m torn between the following two books
A Philosophy of Walking by Frederic Gros
Wanderlust by Rebecca Solnit
Right now, my preferences tend toward Gros, mainly because I had the opportunity to skim some pages at the local Kinokuniya, whereas I only came across Solnit while reading reviews of Gros.
Alternatively, I could choose to buy neither, because I know my colleagues have chipped in to purchase a book for my birthday – it’s either gonna be the latest Murakami Haruki or a title from the Man Booker shortlist.
After all, why read a book about walking when you could just…walk? I’m gonna trail through my computer in search of photographs taken on walks and share them here.
