What to read? July 19, 2011Posted by Lauren Cooke in Books.
Apologies if you’ve already read this, but it is a carbon copy of my Tumblr post – I thought you guys might be able to help!
I am currently trying to work out what books to take with me on my travels. I have a Kindle, so don’t need to worry about the weight, but Kindle books are pretty pricey and I don’t want to buy anything that I am likely to dump down the digital charity shop (great idea, btw!) at the first opportunity.
As soon as I have gotten past the mental hurdle of paying for a book that I will never see on anything but a digital screen (I can’t bring myself to buy a digital album either!), these are the books I am currently thinking about.
The list is short – I can’t think of any books, so these are largely the suggestions of my lovely Twitter friends. Any suggestions, therefore, gleefully welcomed!
- Stephen King short stories
- Some Irvine Welsh (Marabou Stork Nightmares & Reheated Cabbage)
- Trudi Canavan
- How To Be A Woman, Caitlin Moran
- Kraken – China Mieville
- The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
Any more suggestions?
