ramble (verb) 1. wander about. 2. talk or write confusedly.

When someone rambles they wander about aimlessly. They take a stroll, that is, walk for pleasure especially in the countryside. When you ramble you just walk along without any serious purpose or a fixed destination. Ramble also means to go on talking about something in a confused manner, with the result that the listeners feel bored. When a writer rambles they might be writing about things not really connected with the topic of their book. The book therefore may be boring.
