Books I am Taking On my Travels


Yesterday, I did a quick rush through to Eloor Library to stock up on a couple of books for my upcoming trip to Delhi and Agra.

The library was well-stocked for a change. I was extremely tempted by Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger, but I really wanted a break from ghosts after my last read :).

I eventually settled on:

  • Creation in Death by J.D.Robb. Because I am hoping to discover a new favorite crime writer. J.D.Robb is actually a pseudonym for Nora Roberts, and although I am not a fan of her romantic novels, I am curious to see how her crime novels stack up.
  • A River Sutra by Gita Mehta. Because this is kind of an anthology of short stories set by the Narmada river. And isn’t this the best choice when you are actually traveling in India ? Of course, it would have been great to actually pick a book based in Delhi or Agra, but since I couldn’t find anything interesting in the library, this will have to do. Plus, it makes a nice start for my South Asian Author Challenge that I am participating in 🙂

So, what do you think of my reading choices? What books do you like to take on a trip?

      I will def be posting a complete review of the book. I am so excited to be reading it, I hope it meets my expectations

  • I like to take as many books as I can manage and still keep my bags under the weight limit. I’m quite awful about it – and if I’m going somewhere with good used bookshops, I always take books I’ve been meaning to read but not really wanting to read, so I can abandon them there and replace them with better ones. 🙂

    • @Jenny: I like your strategy 🙂
