I want to take an opportunity to reflect on a recent occurrence in my life here in New Zealand that is significant in its rarity. Since my arrival to this wonderful place, I....read.....a...book. And not just a book mind you full of pictures and such (my usual fare), but an epic monster tallying over 900 pages. I'll give those who passed out from this news a second to recover, as I was confused with the event myself. There. So, what's interesting here is that this book has two more sequels, which I already own waiting in the safety of my house in Colorado, however, they are difficult to read from that distance. Now I didn't think to bring these other two books, because lets be honest, I figured to be a new pages into the current one before returning home anyway. Apparently...I CAN read. So, as my two companions find particularly hilarious, I felt so strongly to finish the set of books that we found a book store in a near by town, where I repurchased the books for an absurd price considering that fact I OWN them. However, there was great joy in finding these books, especially because they were the only two copies left at the store; truly it was meant to be. Anyway, I thought it was odd and interesting to take a break from my back packing adventures and comment on another achievement in my life.

For anyone curious, I was on book V of THE DARK TOWER by Stephen King, and needed to find out now how it ends with books VI and VII. And yes I did read the first four years ago, but the time is finally here to finish it.

A book man?!
I'm shocked. I've been hearing tales of New Zealand Beauty, hiking, hardship, elk, etc. and now I have to comment. You read a book! I always knew you could read :) I guess now I have to read Dark Tower. Anthony won't shutup about it. In between sobs that is...he cries when you're not here. It's pathetic.
