Books to Read in March, roadsanddestinations.com

We’re officially in March. Where did February go? For those who visited my site before, you know that this year I decided to start a book club and post a few books to read each month. However, there were no book recommendations for February. It can be blamed on extended list of things I had to catch up after our European adventure a month ago. But it’s a new month and there is no room for excuses: legit or not so important. With that being said, please grant me a pleasure to share with you a few new books to read in March.

HERE ARE MY MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS TO READ IN MARCH:

Scraping Heaven: A Family’s Journey along the Continental Divide Trail

I’m not going to lie, Scraping Heaven is a book I’m most excited to read in March. Despite being classified as a travel book, it reevaluates meanings of marriage, family, and children. Along with that, it tells about real life adventures of family of four. Cindy Ross (I recommended one of her books for reading for January) and her husband’s obsession with nature and hiking started way before their two children came into picture. However, having the kids didn’t stop these adventurous souls from conquering new trails. In Scraping Heaven, Cindy shares the story of how she together with her family hiked the Continental Divide Trail. A 3,100-mile trail running along the crest of the Rocky Mountains from Canada to Mexico is not an easy task for an adult, let alone a small child. Nevertheless, this family managed to do it not once but five summers in a row.

On the Road

On the Road by Jack Kerouac also belongs to series of travel book to read in March. You might know I try to complement travel stories with inspirational and motivational reads. However, this novel easily suits all of these categories. On the Road goes on to tell the story about two friends (Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady) as they road trip through the whole country in search of meaning and freedom.

Abundance: The Future is Better than You Think

Without exaggeration, Abundance is one of the most eye-opening books to read in March. This New York Times bestseller brings practical solutions to such important issues as food, water, energy, education, freedom, and health care. The authors explain how progress in new technologies and artificial intelligence will enable global society to reach far greater benefits than it had in the past 200 years. According to the book, with such abundance, many of the issues we face now will be eliminated. Moreover, the gap between the privileged few and majority of population will be closed pretty fast.

On Writing

Lastly, but not least, I’d like to include in our reading list On Writing by Stephen King, one of the most entertaining and educations books to read in March. Part memoir, part great instructional recourse, this book presents some of the basis tips for every writer. Spiced with vivid memories form childhood and adult life of the author, On Writing will please every reader.
