Hello from Bangkok!
I didn’t get a chance to post my holiday reads before leaving yesterday so now I’m unpacked and wirelessly connected here they are:
I’ve been quite modest with my packing as it’s easy to get (and swap) English language books here. Bangkok 8 was recommended to me by Nomadreader, and The Road to Wanting (passed on to me by Savidge Reads) is partially set in Thailand. Girl In Translation is nothing to do with Thailand but I’ve been looking forward to reading it since I heard Jean Kwok speak at a book event so thought it would be a good one to pack. I also downloaded Val McDermid’s The Mermaids Singing to my Kindle app for iPhone – not suitable for poolside reading!!
Kind of deciding whether to get a copy of The Beach, but for some reason I really don’t fancy it. I think it has something to do with memories of the Leonardo DiCaprio film being long and depressing but it’s a long time since I saw it so maybe I should try the book?
