When Sue and I visit the bookstores I grab magazines, books and anything else I can find about Lake Michigan. Then it's time for a cup of coffee and getting lost in one of them.
I love reading about sailing and boating in the early days on Lake Michigan. I also enjoy the history of the great lakes in general. It's easy for me to imagine the hardships that many endured in the early years.
Hemingway's Nick Adams series is I think a special treat. It puts you in the Northern Michigan area around Little Traverse Bay. He mentions the Petoskey and Charlevoix areas in pretty good detail. Great reading by a master!
