Reading List

We both love to read and books are an absolute godsend to pass the time traveling, waiting for the train, lazing around in bed or as often as we can at the park on a blissful shady afternoon.

Ron and I usually have one or two in tow to read and then swap, the only downside is they weigh down the backpacks. Since we are on a budget, we try to peruse hotel bookswaps and used bookstores whenever we can, so you can see we get a lot of popular, mainstream fiction writers. But with Crichton or King, you can hardly go wrong.

Here's a list of all the books we read during our travels:

Naked Spirits: A Journey into Occupied Tibet (Travel) Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling Bones (Alex Delaware, No. 23)
The Burden of Proof Prey Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World
The Last Juror Airframe Triple
Stupid White Men : ...And Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation! The Scorpio Illusion Different Seasons (Signet)
Notes from a Small Island The Midnight Club On the Road (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century)
Speaking with the Angel A Thousand Splendid Suns Annapurna
Christine The Lost Symbol (Robert Langdon, No. 3) River of Gods
The Cat Who Went into the Closet (Cat Who...) The Sanctuary Change of Heart: A Novel
Simplicity The Other Hand The Secret Purposes: A Novel
Dolores Claiborne Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill On Writing


Out of these 30 books, the following are highly recommended:
Naked Spirits: A Journey into Occupied Tibet
Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling
Stupid White Men : ...And Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!
Different Seasons
A Thousand Splendid Suns
Annapurna
Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill
