I leave for Italy in 21 days and I can’t figure out what to take with me to read. I am currently in a reading slump and I have nothing on my reading list. I need your help.
I will be away for close to 6 weeks and will be spending at least 1 week on the beach. Last year I took 3 books on our Italy / Turkey trip (only 3 weeks) so I figure I need to bring at least 5 books.
My strategy with trip books is to buy them used (if possible) so that I don’t feel guilty leaving them behind when I am finished. I usually buy a few things (clothes, souvenirs etc) when I am travelling and I find the extra room previously occupied by the books is a huge help.
I am hoping that a few of you are readers and can help me out with a suggestion or two. I will read almost anything – fiction, non-fiction, mystery, biography, historical and young adult fiction. The only genre that I am not crazy about is science fiction, but at this point, I am open to anything.
The only thing that I ask is that you’ve read the book or that it has come highly recommended to you by a friend. Oh and that is also available in paperback – I hate lugging around hard covers at the best of times.
Thanks in advance.
