I just got home to Portland, OR a little over a week ago and realized I've been traveling about 8 months out of the entire year. While sitting on the plane, bus, or vanagon, I read. There are a few books that changed who I am as a person and I'd love to share them with you.
I'm no big-city dweller, but Brookyln is most definitely (so far) my favorite part of New York City. Immediately getting off the subway, you feel an air of realness vs. the polished and perfumed versions of NYC like Soho.
