I can tell from the Guardian Review that summer is here. Wouldn’t know it fom the weather. It’s time to discuss holiday reading matter.
It’s all very well having the likes of Martin Amis list five books, and probably very long ones at that, to carry them through their holiday. What I want to know is, if you could only take one book this summer, which one would you choose?
I am re-organising my holiday dates, so I expect to have finished Harry Potter when it comes to going away. So looking at my current most urgent pile, I’d probably pick Mary Hoffman’s City of Flowers. It’s long(ish) and has had a long wait.
But I hope you understand that my suitcase will be full of books. Interesting exercise, though. And so difficult I’m relieved it was only an exercise.
