    Hanger's recommended reading

    While thinking ahead to my next hang, I'm wondering what to read as I bed down.

    What's the best book you've ever read while suspended?

    Best book for sleeping? Because any of my techie books would qualify there. A few pages in a swinging hammock and it's off to dreamland.

    I have something on the order of 200+ e-books on my phone. In general have 3-4 on the go at any time.

    Ohhh....thanks for the reminder...I gotta load up a couple for the MAHHA this weekend! I like reading the "covert mission, political subterfuge, brink of global annhiliation and rogue nation/state-governments" type books. That helps me sleep better at night, knowing that if it's been written, it's already been done--and we survived afterall!!!LOL!

    I'd recommend 'Between a Rock and a Hard Place' by Aron Ralston.

    or 'Touching the Void' by Joe Simpson.

    "Nooit meer slapen" W.F. Hermans. Sorry, this to trigger Dutch readers. Hermans is one of the greatest Dutch writers (the best in my opinoin). This book (1966) is translated in english "Beyond sleep" and is a account of a trip trough Norway in search of meteorites. Absolutly hiking literarure!
