Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

I have read 40 books this year, but I have not read any that are on your list.
But then again, there are so many books and so many authors and so many different subjects it is a good thing for those authors that not everyone read the same books :-)
