Travel Reading Meme

Lisa tagged me for a meme about my travel reading habits. I have had a lot of experience in this area recently. For this meme, I specifically tag birdlashes and planet books. I generally tag anyone else who reads and would like to share in the comments. I look forward to hearing from you!

1. What book are you reading right now? Do you like it?

2. What was the last book you read on a plane?

3. What was the last book you read on a roadtrip?

4. What is the most unusual place you found yourself reading?

5. What books would you take to keep you occupied on a 2 week vacation to the beach?


1. Right now I am reading Wind Up Bird Chronicle and love it! Seriously, i think that I have a crush on this book.  The characters are good and the plot has me on the edge of my seat.  When I am not reading it, I want to be reading it.  This book is truly an addiction. 

2. I was reading Wind Up Bird Chronicle when I was on the plane from DC back to Seattle.  On the way from Seattle to Baltimore, I was reading Midnight's Children which is also a good traveling book.

3. The last roadtrip I was on was last summer traveling last summer from place to place on the east coast.  During the time, I was listening to the audio book of Harry Potter.  Jim Dale is a fabulous "reader" who makes you feel like you are listening to some darn good theatre.

4. The most unusual place I found myself reading was while waiting in line to get my driver's license.

5.  I would take any books that were on my TBR list for a two week stint at the beach.  This currently includes She's Come Undone, Cities of the Interior, and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

OK - this meme is really growing my tbr list! I'm intrigued with Wind Up Bird Chronicle. Odd title and I've never heard of it.

Just checked it out on amazon.com. Sounds interesting and looooooong. At 624 pages, that's at the outside edge of my limits when it comes to a book, maybe even beyond the edge!! But it sounds good!

I know the book is VERY long. Once you get started, though, you will be hooked. It is divided into manageable chapters. You can digest the book slowly; I understand the intimidation. However, this book plays nicely with others. Plus once you start, you will want to know WHAT THE HECK IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT!
