Snake Bite Key

A while back I read a book by Jimmy Buffett of all people. It is called Tales From Margaritville. It is a great collection of short stories and a perfect summer read. I fell in love with this place in the book called Snake Bite Key. It is a wonderful little island off the gulf coast that is full of fun, adventure, relaxation and a colorful cast of characters. I wish I lived there. It seems like the perfect place for me. So if you read the book and think "Hey that sounds like Thistown, USA" let me know!

Another Book
I also read Under the Banner of Heaven, A Story of Violent Faith by Jon Krakauer. I think that a lot of people hate this guy and I can't remember why, but I found the book to be very interesting. It is like a portal into a world (the FLDS) that many of us don't even know exists, and certainly will never see. I still have this book so if I know you in real life and you want to borrow it, let me know.

I just finished the chapter about the hurricane and Snake Bite Key. It sure does sound like a cool place and probably somewhere Buffett has been.
