52 Peaks Book Club

The hope of Tami in pairing an inspiring book to each mountain in the 52 Peaks journey is to provide an added layer of perspective and insight into why we felt the need to hike that mountain. We would love to get your feedback on the book and the mountain. Please go to the Book Club Blog for that book and tell us your comments! Read A Book Club for 52 Peaks blog to learn more about the inspiration behind the book club.

Now Reading – 52 Peaks is Complete!!

It has been a great pleasure for me during this year of hiking 52 Peaks to share with you some of my favorite all-time books. I hope you were able to read a few of these and will come back to this list to find good reading picks for the future.  Books truly are another way to adventure through time and across the world. We make friends across time and space through the pages of a book. Enjoy and happy reading!
