Book Give-Away


                                        Happy Thanksgiving!

Update: Debra was the first to contact me.  I hope she enjoys it as much as we have.  I also hope she will pass it on. 

I got this wonderful book from MeriKay (who got it from Judy) with the promise that I would pass it on.

It contains a soulful, deeply reflective account by a 50-something year-old woman who through-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 1994. It's one of the best books I've read about the Trail experience.

I'll send it to the first person who emails me with contact info. 

Who wants it next?


  1. I just ordered from the will pass. Can't wait to read it though...

  2. I did that with a running book. Before I sent it, I signed my name and location. Then I suggested everyone do the same. I was trying to get someone from every state to read it. I wonder where it is today.

  3. I didn't see this soon enough to email, but I plan to order the book for myself. Thanks for telling us about it.

  4. So, everyone ahead of me passed? Sign me up then. When done, I'll send it on to my daughter who thought she was going to through hike the Pacific Crest Trail before she got a job offer she couldn't resist.

  5. I am so thrilled to get this book - can't wait to read it! And absolutely, I will keep the tradition and pass it on. I'll let you know when I've finished it, and will post on my blog to find the next recipient, just as you did here. Thanks again! Happy Holidays! :)

  6. I like Pat's idea of signing and dating the book and putting the location. It would be interesting to see where it's been after a while! :)

  7. That would be fun to have it dated and signed .. but I suppose one would have to have an address... well, I have one but I'm not there! I'll look for it at libraries...


Let's chat !
