I finished Into The Wild last week and still think McCandless was an ass (but that doesn't mean I think he deserved to die).

Next up is a book about misadventure in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I assume it will be about people who mostly did everything right and had one or two things go wrong (as opposed to McCandless doing nothing right and having one or two things accidentally go right).

I also have an outdoor survival book. I figure I should make more attempts to learn the things McCandless didn't (and that I'm critical of him for not learning).

And I reread Ender's Game a month ago. Still a fun, easy read.

Alexander Supertramp. He was an ass and it's an inarguable truth
