Hey Me-fites, I'm dipping my toes into the pool of time travel novels. My main character is going back to 1984--because I want to write about 1984 Vancouver, pre Expo, pre Olympics, when it was a hick town on the far edge of the world. When my characters back in time, he's going to check out some bands, preferably pre-famous, you know, $5 cover, one of three acts, tiny clubs, etc. So, oh wise ones, what band should he find himself seeing?
It's been awhile since we had a "long flight book recommendations' question. Please give me your recent favorites for making the time fly by! [more inside]
i am hoping you guys can help me find a great book to read. i loved bill bryson's "a walk in the woods." do you know of one that would be in that vein (travel/ humor) but dealing with car camping, or national parks, or maybe even driving with your family cross country? alternately, how about something similar to Annie dillard's "pilgrim at tinker creek" but more specific to the canyonlands area? thank you!
What are some good books (novels, preferably, but willing to look into really excellent non-fiction) to get in the mood for my trip to Sri Lanka in August?
I need a longish, interesting, well-written book (fiction) to read on an upcoming trip. Any suggestions? [more inside]
