Goodness me... for holiday reading?
Give me the 'wrong' books any day of the week for my 'down time' on holiday. A good faction novel which takes days and is almost 'unputtable' down or some frothy chick lit which takes a couple of hours at the most.
Me too Mrs M. I'm about to read 'Smokin Seventeen' by Janet Evanovitch. I'm sure it's one of the 'wrong books', but I'll enjoy it.

Not sure how many books to take for our week long cruise to Norway....going to choose some today from the library, already have one lined up but I might have read it by then!! I like historical novels (Philippa Gregory, Alison Weir), or as my son says, anything with a girl in a long dress on the cover!!!!

I think Malcolm is teasing, but I am taking my Kindle and two real books because I love to handle books. My Kindle is loaded with self-improvement, spiritual, Tolstoy, Austen, Chick lit, Thrillers, maps, travel books etc so I will dip in and out of them all. LOL

Yes I'm afraid those aren't the books for me either. Luckily there are enough books published every year for everyone to have their choice. It's a good job everyone has different taste or I'd be out of a job. I'm in a book dilemma at the moment as I read a book a day on holiday but we don't have enough room to pack 12 just for me. Most of my books waiting to be read are proofs which are usually bigger and heavier than regular paperbacks. I think I'll take 1 and risk the library having enough books I want to read.

Found just the book to keep me amused on my cruise (7th August) Gervase Phinn's Out of the Woods but not Over the Hill
