During the Covid-19 pandemic, I started reading more consistently than I had been for years. I figured it made it time to take up keeping a list of books read, along with a little capsule review of each.
- Revolutionary Ride: On the Road in Search of the Real Iran, Lois Pryce. Story of her solo motorcycle journey across Iran in 2013. Excellent, and isn’t helping my hard-to-scratch itch to visit Iran. (May 2020)
- Move Along, Please: Land’s End to John O’Groats by Local Bus, Mark Mason. Another enjoyable read by Mason, who has a plethora of quirky ways to explore Britain. Had me nostalgic for adventures in the early 2010s around the UK by public transport. (May 2020)
- The Audacity of Hops: The History of America’s Craft Beer Revolution, Tom Acitelli. The story of the craft beer movement from the 1960s to 2010s. Fascinating to read about the ebb and flow of breweries in the early days, really up until the 2000s it was still so much more niche than it is now. (May 2020)
- Lois on the Loose: One Woman, One Motorbike, 20,000 Miles Across the Americas, Lois Pryce. After enjoying Revolutionary Ride I ordered up the rest of Pryce’s catalog. An excellent story of her 2003 journey across the Americas on a 225cc Yamaha bike, and had me hankering for some long-distance adventure after this is over. (May 2020)
