Books for travelling

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

I like to browse through my collection of books in my bookcases and as it happens I stumbled on a few books I was reading, but put on hold, and as usual, somewhat forgot about. These are Blue Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson (1996) and The Shadow Eater by Adam Lee (1998). These books fall under a different category than the earlier ‘on hold’ books. These are actually travel books; books that are less important to me and which I mainly use to fill up time while travelling. I don’t have a car, so I mainly use public transport, so if it’s a longer trip (more than an hour), then I like to have a book along. If I want I can finish them any time, but I like to keep some books in reserve. These two are currently for that, in case I don’t have a book that I don’t want to read more.
