I had great plans for this blog when I began it. I have read so many books in my life that are worth revisiting and I ‘ve been reading them for such a long time that they can’t help but form a history. I always loved adventure books as a kid. Captain Blood by Sabatini, Robin Hood, and Robinson Crusoe. And sports novels by John R. Tunis, et al. I loved them so much that I sometimes reread them many times before I moved into the larger world grown up fiction. Even then I read and still reread whenever the particular taste for an author overwhelms me. So I find myself returning to Travis McGee. The hot Florida sun bakes my neck, the loneliness of the narrator reminds me of my own lonesomeness. And for awhile, I forget the world around me.
