I need your help. I leave for the big European adventure on Wednesday. I have my iPad all loaded up with ebooks. But I can’t decide which print book to take. Yes, I said book. Singular. I am trying to travel super light so I am only going to bring one print book with me. For take offs and landings and any other time an ebook is impractical. I need the book to be long enough to last the trip but interesting enough to keep my attention. I have narrowed the pile to 5 books. This is where you come in. Let me know in the comments which book I should or shouldn’t bring. I want arguments for and against any of these.
- The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende
- Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
- Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
- American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld
- American Gods by Neil Gaimain
Please, please, please help my with this decision. (Haha – I just realized that two of these books have “American” in them).
This week is Audibook Week, hosted by my lovely friend Jen at Devourer of Books. You should all head over tomorrow there and check out the good times that will be had. Here at my books. my life., I will be posting a discussion post about audiobooks in the morning and an audiobook review in the afternoon. I wanted to give you all a warning that this will result in a lot of posts this week. But they will be full of win. I promise.
And finally, I will be keeping the blog going while I am gone this month but I won’t be around responding to comments and such like I usually am. I’m not leaving quite yet but I wanted to give you all a heads up.
