A Sense of the World, page 1

March has not been a good month for finishing books. I've just DNF'd my 3rd book and a book club book at that. I'm having trouble with all these books about characters trying to find themselves and wandering aimlessly through life. Give me something I can sink my teeth into. Murder, steamy sex, a cozy mystery, maybe a little shoot 'em up, take names later. I need action and a hook. Not ho hum wander through the story.

A Sense of the World: How a Blind Man Became History's Greatest Traveler should fit the bill. We're not talking about traveling in today's world. Oh no this man traveled in the late 1700s & early 1800s. I'm suspecting things were a bit different back then. You didn't just hop on a airplane and land somewhere. You had to work to get where you were going and being blind only adds a little something to the mix. If this doesn't get me reading juices flowing maybe it's time for a break.
