Holiday reading

Eighteen months or so again, you wouldn't have seen me near a Kindle. I've always loved the physical feel of a book in my hand - the weight of it in your palm, the smell of new pages - but when we bought my mum a Kindle Fire HD for her birthday eighteen months ago, I was intrigued. And sure enough, six months later I'd decided to buy one for myself and now have no idea how I'd live without it. Gone are the days of lugging Game of Thrones tomes around in my bag to devour twice on the tube, pulling out my French copy of The Lord of The Rings (yes, I am that person) or even sharing knowing smiles when someone else has their nose in the same book as you. I now have a bazillion books all in one lightweight place to tear my way through (I've been known to read two books in a day), and have just blitzed the Kindle Store for the perfect holiday reads.

Here are a few I'm taking with me - this batch are mostly crime novels, they're my guilty pleasure:

  1. I gave into the Kindle thing too and it pains me to say it's one of the best things I ever did. Sometimes it's just lovely to pick up a book with real pages and that booky smell but being able to take your whole library with you is not to be sniffed at. Nor is the chance to read whatever tat you like without fear of judgement on public transport.

    I read the Casual Vacancy recently. Took me a couple of goes to get into but I'm glad I stuck with it. I do like a good crimey romp, let us know what you think of the rest of these!
