Ok, all. I know I've been scarce lately, and I owe my little corner of the blog world a little attention, and about a dozen reviews. But before I get to that, I want to ask for your help. I'm travelling to Italy for a week next month and am looking for book recommendations. What to take along?
I have The Once and Future King (mass market paperback) pulled out as I figure it has a lot of pages packed into a small package; plus, I've been meaning to read it forever. This will be the only paper book I bring along*, as I need something to read during take-offs and landings and other non-electronic times, but I have limited suitcase space (read: I'm a chronic overpacker).
I figure I'll go in for the 2nd and 3rd books of the Hunger Games trilogy for some fast-paced plane reading.
But then I feel like I should be reading Italyesque books. Or travelogues. Or wistful romantic literature. Or books about the Renaissance, or train travel, or Europe, or the finer foods of Tuscany.
*Except for the Tuscany travel guide that Thomas from My Porch sent my way when I last posted about traveling to Italy months ago, which was really thoughtful and nice and much appreciated, and which is just further proof that book bloggers are awesome.
