Two days before we leave on vacation, and I haven't packed our bags yet but I've already made a selection of what books to take. It's always a dilemma, I don't want to bring too many because we like to travel light, but also I don't want to run out of reading material, which is something I hate.
Anyway, here's what I have so far, if you have any other suggestions just let me know:
* Extremely loud and incredibly close and Everything is illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer. After reading these reviews by X. and A., I just had to get them.
* The devastating boys and In a summer season, by Elizabeth Taylor, reading suggestions by Jane
* Notes from a small island by Bill Bryson, recommended and gifted by friends and which (I hope) will be good for some laughs.
Since my TBR is huge enough to contain a wide variety of books, I also considered taking others like Diana Gabaldon's latest (anyone read this yet ? I'm curious to read more of Claire and Jamie's story, but the size kind of scares me), Amy Tan's Saving fish from drowning or more fantasy books by Patricia McKillip, but unless we get really bad weather and get trapped in a snowstorm, I think these will be enough for now.
