List of Vacation Reads

The Longest Journey by E.M. Forster
The Easter Parade by Richard Yates
How to Travel with a Salmon by Umberto Eco
The Lost Language of Cranes by David Leavitt

These are the hard copies I’ll be bringing with me, in addition to e-books. They all have to fit into my new Tucano iPad messenger bag, the only item I’m carrying on board the plane.

  1. Having to limit oneself to what will fit in a carryon is a great way to cut back on the number of books one brings! But then you can make up for it in ebooks 🙂

  2. I love picking out the books that I will bring with me on vacation. I’m taking a long flight to Frankfurt, Germany in early summer and am already contemplating the books I might take for the plane.

  3. Sounds like some great picks….enjoy them during your travels!

  4. Ah, Richard Yates. I’ll have to tell you someday about what was said to me, but here it would sound pretentious. Enjoy. And have a safe journey!
