Three books I'm reading

1. All the Countries We've Ever Invaded. This is the book about all the countries Great Britain invaded. There were questions about what constituted "invasion". I'm going to read it and let you know how the British "invaded" unlikely countries like Chile and Kazakhstan.

2. The Pillars of Hercules. Paul Theroux is my favorite travel writer, but I have always skipped this book because the Mediterranean was not deemed (by me) to be exotic enough. I am now ready to read it.

3. Lonely Planet Colombia. We randomly checked Pearl Jam's tour dates and noticed that it will be playing in Bogota at the end of November. This has rekindled my hope of finishing my Pan-American Highway bus trip this year.
