I thought I was the only one who read Books at Burning Man

My friend Scott took the time to compile a list of what everyone was reading this year at the Burning Man festival.

For those who don’t know, the Burn is 50,000 people getting together in the middle of nowhere for the world’s largest outdoor, one week BBQ. I always bring a book (this year it was Bangkok 8).

Scott took the time to ask 100 people what they were reading.

I live and die by these people’s opinions so these are all being added to my winter reading list.
