I like to say that bookreading is a sensory experience. It's not just about reading the words, but the smell, heft, sound of the papery pages turning, and textured feel of a book in my hands which makes reading an essential human activity. As essential for me as being outdoors, exploring the mountains and deserts that surround us here in Durango. The sights, smells, sounds and textures of this amazing corner of the world always keeps me wondering what's on the next page.

Never before had humans ventured beyond Earth orbit. But spurred by the competition of the Cold War, and growing confidence in their redesigned spacecraft, NASA unexpectedly decides to turn an Earth-orbit shakedown mission into humanity's first voyage to another world. The book "Apollo 8" thrillingly tells the human stories behind the international sensation the flight would become---though as one NASA engineer put it beforehand, astronauts Borman, Lovell, and Anders' chances of success were no better than 1 in 3. Author Jeffrey Kluger has combed every kind of record, and coaxed recollections from the participants to tell a fascinating story, complete with muttered quotes caught on tape that reveal the tensions behind the scenes. Simply put, "Apollo 8" is the best book on the golden days of the moon race ever written.
