I'm averaging a couple of books a week at the moment, in and around work. I'm not planning a holiday now until October, which is one that won't give me many opportunities for reading (film festival) but I'll probably take something chunky for the train, something I've been putting off like Gormenghast.
Charles Dickens is also well overdue a visit, again after a sizeable gap since reading A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations while at school. Probably ideal for those rainy days that seem to arrive just when your break has started.
I'm in Masters Dissertation Season at the moment (I'm a proofreader as well as a librarian) so not reading much at all!
Not quite enough to cover all eventualities but it's a start.
Although we are only a few miles from Haworth, I couldn't summon the enthusiasm to read Wuthering Heights or similar, although we did visit the parsonage yesterday. Well worth the trip.
Though Crete is decidedly my heart's home we also venture a little further afield from time to time (as long as it's still Greece) and this year we're headed, for the first time, to Samos, so if you or anyone else, know of any books set on that particular island I'd love to hear about them. Many thanks.
I'm working my way through Terry Pratchett's Discworld books and Robert Asprin's Myth series as well as alternating with some from my To-Read moutain. But I'm thinking that I might just take an entire set from my pile with me, like the whole of the Harry Potter series for the week. That way I don't have to worry about running out of books. ;-)
And wouldn't it be great if someone invented condensed books? Not shortened versions but whole big, fat books that had been condensed to the size of a matchbox and you just had to add water to bring them back to normal size. It's one for all you inventors out there - I'll give you the idea free of charge and promise to be your best customer. And if you can get it done by July I'd be really grateful.
Plus, fewer jokes than Pratchett!
The good thing about where we're going is that there's a bunch of bookshops and charity shops there, so if I start running low on reading material, I can restock. ;-)
If your book group has serious biblioholics of a nervous disposition, there is a particularly disturbing bit in one of the later episodes of the trilogy, I seem to remember. ;-)
Anticipate your summer by browsing holiday bookshops here: http://www.librarything.com/topic/148206
Oh, you meant somebody modern? Umm...
Ah, promised myself Middlemarch too, for the not too distant future. Haven't yet succumbed to Game of Thrones though...
