bookshelves: to-read

why: I want to wander, although I mostly stay put and I'm fascinated by someone who has ceased roaming. Also, this review, which intrigued me with "It's through this book that I learned about the mid-18th century French soldier Xavier de Maistre, who was confined to prison for 42 years (for dueling) and decided to write about each of the items in his room as though it were an important tourist attraction. Swift says that he "invented a new mode of travel."
