I am off to India on Sunday for about four to five weeks. I am sitting and staring at my bookshelves wondering what books to take. I don't really have a number limit- I will take as many as I feel are necessary. But I just can't decide which ones! I am definitely taking Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman and the second volume of the Mahabharata. Everything else is pretty much up for grabs. I was also thinking of River of Gods, by Ian McDonald, but I don't know anyone who has read that one.
Any suggestions? I prefer big complicated books on trips to India as there is a lot of time to read. Here is my TBR list in LibraryThing (just click on "My Library" at the top left and choose To Read from the dropdown), in case that helps make suggestions. Or if you just have a book you really like and suggest for travel reading, let me know! I would love to hear what you guys think!
Obviously a long trip like this means very limited Internet time. I am not sure how much access I'll have, and if I do have it, I don't know how good the connection will be. If I upload reviews, they'll probably be low-graphics and low links and littered with typos. I will edit when I get home :-)
I am hoping for one more review before I leave, and then of course, the drawing for The Shimmer by David Morrell. Please enter if you are still intersted and haven't done so yet- the link is at the top right.
