Book Corner - Finished Reading

Letters from Steven: Stories from the First Solo Walk Around the World

by Steven Newman

367 pages

I really enjoyed this book which was letters that the author had written and sent to a newspaper column in the Cappers Weekly which catered towards rural America. The book is by all means not a travel guide, but stories from his life on the road, people he met, things he did during his walk around the world, what an incredible feat.

Sick Day

Last night as I was on the couch I felt my belly was kind of tight, not
the good tight. More like the scene from "Aliens" tight (No, not that
scene!). I woke up in the middle of the night for what turned out to be
an all night marathon of running to the bathroom and on top of that I
was nauseous. I emailed my coworker to tell him I wasn't coming in. I
spent the entire day today in bed moaning and groaning, the only thing
I could drink was water. I tried an electrolyte drink but that made me
sick. It wasn't until 5PM today that I was able to get out of bed and
into the living room.

Stomach still feels yucky but I think I will be able to eat some toast
and bananas.
