I’m about to head off to Switzerland for the weekend, and, of course, need a book to keep me company. Is it even a holiday if you don’t have a book with you? Hell, is it even a Thursday?!
The Dragonbone Chair is high fantasy, and comes highly recommended by pretty much everyone that’s read it. Or who likes fantasy books. But do I want fantasy while I’m on holiday? Isn’t a holiday it’s own kind of fantasy? And, to be honest, the book is just so enormous, I’m concerned for my back health… I’ve been wanting to read it forever though.
A Year in Provence is a lighter read, travel non-fiction, about, surprisingly enough, Peter Mayle’s year living in Provence. It sounds like fun, and it seems appropriate to read a travel book on holiday – even if it has nothing whatsoever to do with where you’re going.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
