Kindle Mercies

Having a eBook reader along when I travel is, well, a traveling mercy. Especially when laid up unexpectedly for a week! So what have I been reading?

– Cosi Fan Tutti: an Aurelio Zen mystery by Michael Dibdin (I have caught a few of this series on tv)

– Inheritance by Christopher Paolini (the fourth and final Volume of the Eragon saga, having skipped volumes one and three. Having polished off Harry Potter a while back)

– The Singapore Grip (New York Review of Books Classics) by J.G. Farrell (terrific economic history of the British Far East interlaced with memorable characters)

And I have just started
– Reappraisals: Reflections on the Forgotten Twentieth Century by Tony Judt (an estimable historian who is alas no longer with us)

Plus there is the daily (and especially recommended for pilgrim walkers) reading from
– The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have by Mark Nepo

– Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

  1. enjoying your reportage on your “home stay site” A lively one.

  2. Hi Kit I hope your recovery continues -that was a pretty scary episode. If you feel up to it and have the time the Jacobsweg from Nurnberg to Eichstatt (and on to Augsberg via Donausworth) is a charming, well signed, easy stretch of walking-though I met no other pilgrims en route there were lots of friendly locals. Keep safe Nell
