Biking With Books.

Thor Thor he’s our man. If he can’t do it Loki can.

One of the enjoyment of bike riding is bringing along a good book. Often my rides take me to one of the local waterfront spots. Many of my boat photos are taken during my reading rides.

I just finished "The Sword Of Summer" by Rick Riordan. I found this in one of those little 
sidewalk libraries.

I never though about this subject, and am pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy this genre.

Magnus Chase has seen his share of trouble.
Ever since that terrible night two years ago when his
mother told him to run, he has lived
alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits,
staying one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, Magnus learns that someone else is trying to
track him down—his uncle Randolph, a man his mother had always warned him about.

When Magnus tries to outmaneuver his uncle, he falls right into his clutches.
Randolph starts rambling about Norse history and Magnus's birthright: a weapon that has been
lost for thousands of year.

Reading fables about different gods is so much fun. This one is the Norse gods. Odin, Thor, Loki etc. The people who made this stuff up had a much better, fun loving imagination than the authors of the Christian, Muslim and the Mormon types of fables.

My likes also include historical books like “The Rivers of America.” Science Fiction “The Silo Series”, and mystery and thriller genres. I don’t remember where I got the idea to order books by Mo Hayder, but by the end of the first chapter of “Skin”, I was hooked. I have another to read on my book shelf and also two more by Rick Riorden. Both are fables about the Greek gods.

I get tips on books from friends online, or reviews I see in newspapers. Also, there are authors who include books they like in their novels, either by quoting a passage or having the characters talk about a book or author. When I do like a book, I go to places online like Barnes and Noble. There I peruse reader comments who enjoyed it. I then look to see the other books they read. I’ll check out the comments there and often order that book. I always buy used naturally.
