I don’t usually like to read, but I want to give it another try. I’m really into this girl who LOVES it. I went to her place for the first time last week and she has books all over the place. She’s coming over this weekend and I’d like to have at least one book that I’m actually reading for her to see (whatever I pick, I’m pretty sure she’s read it – I’m not risking any fakery). I don’t want her to think I’m illiterate/stupid.
Can you recommend something I might not hate? Preferably something I can get a few chapters into quickly?
I’m 33. I like sports and the outdoors, and TV shows like “Dual Survival.” I haven’t read a whole book since college.
Fear not – I have just the book for you.
It’s timely, manly, easy to read, and a story of survival that should align with your interests.
Perhaps best of all – the movie version will be available for rental in February, so you and your lady can cuddle up and watch it together after you finish the book.
My recommendation for you is The Martian, by Andy Weir.
PS. Remember, I read everything.
