Like many, I guess when I go away on holiday, it's a chance to relax by the pool and occasionally that will mean I can catch up on a good book (if i've not already finished it on the plane during the flight).
For a start, if you enjoy travel (which I'm guessing you do if you are reading this), then Tripping the Flight Fantastic by Andrew Fraser is a great read on how he travels around the world without paying a fortune, whilst anyone who loves crime novels should check out the McRyan series by Roger Stelljes.
So what you got on your kindle that is worth checking out?
Me oh yes I take my Kindle with every intention of reading, in reality I am just far to nosey and spend my time wandering or people watching. I took a book with me recently and in the 2 weeks we were away I managed a total of 6 pages.
What I need is a book that has VERY short chapters so I could read a few pages then put it down for me me to be nosey.
Recent reads for me back home have included The Girl On The Train and The Girl With All The Gifts however I have to admit my favourite travel tales have still got to be by Peter Mayle.
Couldn't be without my Kindle on holiday -usually download half a dozen books to read before I go -last holiday to Corfu, we had some bad weather and the books were invaluable -I read about 6 in total!!
I'm like Kiltman, too nosey around a pool or on a plane to read, but I enjoy a good read on a nighttime before bed. They have to involve murders or be true crime though!!
And how right he was. On my third Kindle now - they do pack up for various reasons and have over 1,500 loaded on it.Read about 12 whilst we were in Lanzarote - usually read 3/4 each week. Most cost me nothing as I use
where there are plenty free. Has not stopped me browing the bookshops/stalls mind you.
Fiona - I bought a basic Fire after the kids stole the iPad for when I'm away. Hard to argue with it for the price...
