Re: My Summer readings

I posted on your blog to recommend "Sailing Alone Around the World" by Joshua Slocum, which I just finished. The journey took place in the late 1800's (the first solo circumnavigation,) but except for a few passages the book reads as if it could have been written last year.

Re: My Summer readings

Thank you Scratchee,
I read it some time ago and I couldn't agree more with you!
A classic book but it "reads as if it could have been written last year".
