I have already started thinking about what I should read on my forthcoming holiday. It is a while since I’ve been on one, but suffice it to say that I don’t go on any trip without a supply of reading material – usually in excess, unless I am sure I will be somewhere where I can borrow or buy.
Fiction or non-fiction? Literary or light reading? Thriller or crime? Science fiction? Some decisions need to be thought about – though it is still rather early to put choices into a carry-on bag!
The problem is that I don’t want to finish whatever I chose before the end of the journey. Otherwise I will really be going crazy. Of course, there would be some magazines to read – or rather skim through. But that can be done in half an hour or so, maybe slightly more. A movie or two to watch? Sure, but then what else? A snooze or a doze – sure – though I can’t really sleep when I travel, unlike some lucky people.
So at the moment it looks like fiction, probably on the lightish side, and a thriller… But then it depends on what is on my “to read” shelves.
