I was talking with a friend a few weeks ago about vacation reading. Whenever we go on any sort of vacation, I pack the following:
- my copy of Nine Stories by J.D. Salinger, and
- a random assortment of other books, only a fraction of which I will actually crack open before returning home, but really, a girl needs options, doesn’t she?
The friend I was talking to always takes Crime and Punishment when he travels. Yesterday I witnessed someone toss a copy of the complete works of C.S. Lewis into his bag. Does anyone else have a desert island book? Does it depend on the nature or destination of the vacation? Do you just toss a copy of Cosmo into your suitcase and call it a day?
