During the year i buy cheap books and leave them at the hotel where we stay, they all had a take one leave one area and i leave my name in it and also the date we stayed there, hope someone else will pass it the same way.

Saves me weight on the way back home also ;)

In a Paradise setting reading is not a big thing, only my view.

If you like action books the David Baldacci books are good. They always have some actual history mixed in and he discusses what is real and what is fiction at the end. Tina Fey Bossypants if you want to laugh. Lost Dogs if you want to cry. I have an e-reader so I just load up with 10 or 15 books from the library or Kobo and I'm all set.

OH read dragon tatoo last year and loved it so he is getting the two follow ups to read on this hol.

I love travel books and learning about different countries and cultures, have read all Bill Bryson books, so if any one knows of any good ones I would love to hear them.
