Holiday Reading

I’m going on holiday on Tuesday.  Last year Marty bought me a Kindle.  I love books but I didn’t want an electronic book reader.  I had looked at these before and thought the page refresh rate was too slow for the speed at which I read fiction.  But the Kindle has improved and I’m in love.  It’s a magic device that can hold up to 3,500 books that fits into my handbag.

The last time I went on holiday I had 12 books in my suitcase and 2 in my handbag.  This time I’m going to put my Kindle in my handbag and a couple of books in the suitcase.  I’ll also have to carry the charger for the Kindle.  I know that the battery life should last but I don’t want to risk running out of books because I’ve run out of power.

I haven’t completely sorted out my book list yet, but I’m planning on reading the following books:
