What I did for reading material is probably what most of you do NOT think
will work for you, but believe it or not I found MAGAZINES were what I
enjoyed most. Here's why:
* Reasonably easy to pick up in various towns
* Throw them away when you're done
* I really enjoy reading a good magazine cover to cover and it's
something I rarely make the time to do off of the Trail.
* I personally enjoyed reading about "the real world" on my hike. It was
like reading about a distant place I knew very well and would return to.
My hike was about doing something different and wonderful; I didn't feel
the desire to cut myself off from "reality" completely.
Oh and it was four weeks into my hike before I had enough "down time" in
camp to carry leisure reading. So I might recommend starting out with
nothing and changing your mind once you're in the groove.
As always, just letting folks know what worked for me.
