I’m doing the format a little bit differently this week. I’ll be traveling a lot in the coming months, and need book recommendations. Fiction, nonfiction… nothing is out of the realm of possibility. Except for political books. No offense, but I really don’t want to hear either side’s partisan rant.
If possible, I’d prefer it to be a Kindle book. For at least one of my trips, I need to minimize the amount of stuff I’m packing. Instead of an armload of books, I’ll be toting along Ye Olde Kindle.
And please suggest something that’s not heavy on footnotes. I’m trying to read Mary Roach’s Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex because I adore Mary’s writing, but the interface for viewing footnotes on my 2009 Kindle is abysmal. This, of course, is making the reading take 14 times longer than it should because all of her good stuff is stashed away in the footnotes.
So? Whatcha got for me?
